Hopefully you will take the plunge and reinstall to c:\perl cause it can litelarlly make life easier (and I too really hate putting crap under my root, stupid unix-like crap)

Yea, on my previous machine the "Program Files" directory go so large that it was a pain to browse -- I think it should fit on one page. So now I use another level to the tree. I put Perl under "Program Files\Languages\Perl".

Further in the past, I've had my program directory called "apps", because it was short. I found that many setup programs said <boot drive>\Program Files as the default anyway, rather than looking up the "special folder" location!

Using the PROGRA~1 when installing should work. If I knew where else it was getting a name from...

What is DMAKE?
