Look at using the Win32::Process module. It's the only way you are going to be able to launch several applications at once on Win32 without using Perl 5.6 and some fork()ing.

The other methods that have been mentioned in this thread will force your program to wait until the launched application closes before it can continue running, which isn't a desirable side-effect if you are programming an application launcher.
