I've done this quite effectively. I simply 'shared' the directory where I had Perl installed and wrapped the Perl script as a *.bat file that knew how to launch perl as \\mymachine\perlshare\bin\perl. Then when people (inevitably) copied the *.bat to wherever they put their little utilities, it continued to work.
I even allowed people to avoid relying on my Perl installation if they wanted to. My *.bat wrapper (based on what pl2bat does) would try to run a local "perl" first and only run \\mymachine\perlshare\bin\perl if no local "perl" was found. In a few cases where my script required non-core modules, I even made it smart enough to try to 'require' the needed module(s) and, if that failed, it would just silently exit in a way that would tell the *.bat wrapper to launch via my shared perl.
