If you want to stop console windows from popping up when you call commands with backticks, try adding the following block to your script:

BEGIN { Win32::SetChildShowWindow(0) if defined &Win32::SetChildShowWindow; }

This answer was taken from ActiveState's Perl FAQ, and was pointed out by Eradicatore in supressing console with perl2exe and backticks.
