in thread Copying the Strawberry perl.exe

perl.exe does continue to work after we copied it, although I don't know how. It even finds libraries in site/lib. I stringsd the exe, but found no path. Maybe it's finding a dll from the PATH somewhere which contains the rest of the config?

Yes "standard" here is just what someone said it is.

    Perl.exe usually loads perl512.dll, which contains the core of Perl. I believe that all other directories are (on Windows) determined relative to perl512.dll. So either the "correct" perl*.dll is loaded from the appropriate directory, or you have the appropriate PERL5INC set up to make this work. Just copying the perl.exe around shouldn't work.

      This leads me to wonder whether it would help to delete the original perl.exe after copying it to the new location. Of course, the OP has probably done that, but I don't see it stated explicitly anywhere in the thread.
