I've never seen Perl on Windows with ImageMagick built in, but if you're using ActiveState's Perl distribution, it's very easy to install: you can get a Windows installer, which automatically detects ActiveState's Perl distribution, and tries to install itself in the appropriate place (you might need to edit the PPM file to make it work, though).

Won't help if the original poster *can't* install new libraries, though.

    Ok here's the setup I can work with. I have perl 5.6-5.8 at my disposal. I think it's activestate perl. It's on windows. I really want to get this accomplished without having to install additional libraries. Are there any tools in the basic build that I could use to make animated gifs? The gifs don't even have to be that complex. Just a two frame animation would be just fine.

      No. There aren't.

      If you need to produce an animated GIF, you need to either install a module or write the code to do it - perhaps copying from a module on the CPAN.
