in thread What's wrong with @ARGV - or with me?

"Why did you switch...?"

I don't know :-(

But this fixed it: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\perl.exe\shell\open\command was "C:\Perl64\bin\perl.exe" "%1". It should be "C:\Perl64\bin\perl.exe" "%1" %*

One-hit wonder ;-)

Best regards, Karl

    Weird!

    I currently have 5 versions of AS perl installed on this machine -- and I've had many others installed previously -- and that key doesn't exist in my registry.

    What creates it and what uses it?

        Hm. Not sure about the validity of the comments by lucretius. Specifically "To sum up. ftype is old and cmd.exe doesn't care whatever it says.".

        That does not fit with my understanding or experience. I can easily flip the active perl installation on my entire machine between the various versions I have installed by changing the ftype setting.

        And, as I mentioned, I don't have that registry key set and I don't know what is setting it?
