"...env vars are still just env vars..."

Sure, no doubt.

But do you know if Strawberry cares about http_proxy - as ActiveState does?

As i wrote in fairness: I don't know it. Looking at the links you provided doesn't clarify this.

    I haven't looked into that specifically, but the more recent releases of Strawberry Perl includes App::cpanminus. So someone could easily put a copy of portable Strawberry Perl and a minicpan onto a USB drive, which would let you use Perl on any Windows system and use cpanm to install any needed additional modules. Going that route, there is no need for a network connection or needing to deal proxy settings or even needing to "install" Perl.

    ActiveState and Strawberry are still just perl -- they don't care about "http_proxy" specifically

    CPAN/PPM/LWP... might care, but they always care regardless of what flavor of perl you're using
