1. Download the zip package of Strawberry 18.104.22.168 - I have multiple Perl installations and did not want the Strawberry msi messing with my environment.
2. Extract the zip contents to C:\Perl\strawberry5163
3. Run the relocation batch file C:\Perl\strawberry5163\relocation.pl.bat. I did this by just double clicking in explorer.
4. As I didn't use the MSI I need to have a batch file to open a command prompt with the correct environment, so I created strawb5163.bat with the following 5 line content:

I answerwed yes to 'download and build' and selected '2.9.4'.
It all built with no problems using the usual
