I am not very good with dos though. I can't seem to switch to the perl folder.

As a previous monk suggested, you do not need to go to the perl folder, you need to go to the folder where your perl script is, in your case where is. I like to think I am good with the Windows command line, but here's a tool I love: Command Prompt Here.

Create a new notepad file on your desktop (call it cmdhere.reg or something), put the text from the link in it as per the instructions there, save it, close it, double-click it and click OK to merge it into your registry. Then you can use Windows Explorer to find your perl script and then simply right-click on the folder your script is in to open up a command prompt window where the prompt is already at your script's folder!
