I don't think you are following.

Sure, ActivePerl lets you specify the path to install to, and you can give it some other directory name if you want. I don't doubt that it works fine if you give it something with subdirectories (not right off the root) that doesn't contain spaces or other characters that would require quoting or that have special meaning to other parts of the system. So what?

I'm asserting that it does not work if you install to the normal "Program Files" directory or even the short-name alias to that. You seem to be agreeing with me.

If you meant to point out that you could put ActiveState Perl in some other non-standard location, making up some subdirectory names as well, that's incidental to the point of the post, and you made it sound like you were disagreeing with my core assertion rather than just quibbling over a minor point.
