Perl on Windows 2008 R2by jbev2328 (Novice)

jbev2328 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I need to install a perl environment on a Windows 2008 R2 64 bit system.
My server also has a partial Perl environment provided by a software vendor that I wish to override/circumvent with my more complete perl environment.
I've downloaded Strawberry Perl and the latest Cygwin packages for windows. However I'm unsure how to install the two packages so they use and recognize each other.
I've installed Strawberry in c:\strawberry and put this in the PATH variable.
I've installed Cygwin in the c:\cygwin directory.
When I run cpan App::cpanminus from Cygwin terminal it fails because it appears to be trying to run the make command from the legacy perl environment installed by the vendor.
How do I override the vendor-installed perl environment?
How do I install Strawberry and Cygwin so they work together?
thank you in advance for your help and patience.
