Open source Windows Perl distributions have a very high habit of going dead and getting abandoned very quickly. Camelbox, Kurila, etc, read the full list at http://win32.perl.org/wiki/index.php?title=Win32_Distributions Either compile and ship your own perl, or use ActiveState. No other distribution has paid full time programmers on it. Even Microsoft's latest perl is 5.8.8 http://www.suacommunity.com/tool_warehouse.aspx

another list of dead perl distributions from the old (pre 2011) cpan.org site
Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2000/W2K / WinXP (Win32) Try first win32.perl.org. Starting from Perl 5.005 the Win32 support has been integrated to the +Perl standard source code distribution. But if you insist on a binary +: * ActivePerl (Perl for Win32, Perl for ISAPI, PerlScript, Perl Pac +kage Manager) * Strawberry Perl, A 100% Open Source CPAN-capable Perl for Window +s that works exactly the same as Perl everywhere else (includes Perl +for Win32, MinGW, dmake, CPAN preconfigured, libwin32, Win32::API, PP +M, PAR, Expat/XML::Parser). * Vanilla Perl, Experimental/unstable core-Perl-only port used for + MinGW-based distribution R&D (includes Perl for Win32, MinGW, dmake) * Apache/Perl (binaries for both Perl-5.6/Apache-1.0/mod_perl-1 an +d Perl-5.8/Apache-2/mod_perl-2) * CamelPack Installer for ActivePerl, Dev-C++, and nmake * DeveloperSide.Net (compiled under VS.NET and includes the latest + versions of Apache2, PHP, MySQL, OpenSSL, mod_perl, Apache::ASP, and + a few other components) * IndigoPerl (Perl for Win32, integrated Apache webserver, GUI Pac +kage Manager) * niPerl (MSI installer, Win32::GUI, Win32::GUI::XMLBuilder, Docum +entation Viewer, WGX, PAR ready, built-in SciTE editor) * OptiPerl (CGI and console script, IDE with syntax highlighting a +nd debugger, query editor, emulated web server, code completion, hint +s, context sensitive help, code librarian, many included tools) * PXPerl (compiled with Intel C++ Compiler for maximum performance +, lots of modules already installed, with Pugs and Parrot binaries, l +ets you install any other module from CPAN)) * SiePerl for Win32 by Siemens, contains several modules * Prebuilt Perls by Rich Megginson, a special installer is used. These two are very obsolete and no more maintained or updated. Use onl +y if you know that you need these. * Perl (5.004) for Win32 for x86 Contains many useful additional m +odules. README * Perl (5.004) for Win32 for Alpha Identical to the x86 one, excep +t for the target CPU. README If you want to compile Perl for Win32 yourself, only the Microsoft Vis +ual C/C++ is actively supported, but if you want to pay for your comp +iler the also Borland C++ Builder Studio should work reasonably well. + MinGW is a free option that also has been known to work. The Open Wa +tcom, the Digital Mars, and lcc compiler are available (the last one +for non-commercial use only), but there are no reports of Perl being +built with them (patches welcomed by perl5-porters).
