I've never had any problems using Strawberry Perl, and I've been running it since the beta versions. The Virtualbox route seems needlessly complicated to be, a virtual machine to deal with/manage just to run perl? Docker, you'd need to carefully examine the pros and cons depending on the situation. Regardless Jerry_J was clear that switching to Strawberry was painless.

    I wasn't trying to talk anyone out of strawberry Perl, only covering options. Seemed environment isolation was important to OP, which is I why suggested docker/virtualbox in the first place and why I (re)suggestion berrybrew. Dockerhub has quite an extensive collection of Perl containers btw and Docker runs on Windows, soo.... not out of line whatsoever.

      "soo.... not out of line whatsoever."

      I didn't say it was, just that the alternatives you suggested would require careful consideration, weighing up of pros and cons. You made these suggestions to me, not to the person asking the question, so I responded with my feedback.

      Update: your post starts with "Or better yet.."

        fair enough
