in reply to [Solved]: cpan fails when MKS installed on Windows

Why not just start the real cmd.exe when running cpan?

    Hi, I am already running windows cmd.exe but I guess MKS runs its own config scripts at cmd.exe startup or windows startup somewhere (not sure) .
    That is why I am searching for which script & where to turn off ?

      That's an abominable state of affairs !! Is perl itself crippled by this affliction ?
      For example, does perl -e "print $^X" output C:Perl64perlbinperl.exe, or is it just the cpan shell that suffers ?

      If the problem is limited to the cpan shell you might be able to work around the problem by simply not using it.
      I *never* use the cpan shell - in fact I won't even use cpan.pm (or any of its variants) unless the module I'm trying to install has an appallingly long list of pre-requisites.

      Cheers,

        That's an abominable state of affairs !! Is perl itself crippled by this affliction ?

        everything is affected, its a registry hack

        reg query "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor"

        But that "feature" has got to be one of the dumbest malware/jokes msdn played

        Here is output:
        C:\Users>perl -e "print $^X" C:\Perl64\perl\bin\perl.exe C:\Users>
        But I tried without cpan shell using source. and I am able to write Makefile but dmake.exe gives same error.
        C:\Perl64\cpan\build\Perl-Tidy-20121207-joTgGx>dmake C:Perl64perlbinperl.exe: not found dmake: Error code 255, while making 'blib\lib\Perl\.exists'
