Perhaps I misinterpreted what your command prompt looks like. If you're doing something like:
in reply to Re^2: Activerperl permissions error win 7 64 bit vanilla install
in thread Activerperl permissions error win 7 64 bit vanilla install
C:\ perl> perl -v
... then that's not even close to what I meant, and I'm quite sure I don't want to try it to see what happens.
Here's what I meant for you to try, for whatever your command prompt is:
What can be asserted without proof can be dismissed without proof. - Christopher Hitchens, 1949-2011
