I don't understand why your approach of storing the file on a file share wouldn't work with the MSI install. Is it a limitation of the MSI installer or your cloud drive host?

    if there are two options like msi installed and portable perl I, personally, choose everytime the portable one. If it is designed to be portable it is suitable for network share usage too. I work with a Strawberry portable in a share since years without any problem.

    Hi Mr. Muskrat. You are correct - it *DID* work! I installed Strawberry via the MSI to our cloud shared folder, then edited the path to perl inside our master software to point to that shared location. I then hopped onto an employee computer which has access to that folder, the software invokes perl just fine. Amazing! Instant access to perl for our all employees, by installing it in one place. I wrongly thought this would be very painful. Thanks for giving me the courage to try it...
