in thread Copying the Strawberry perl.exe

That doesn't really help, because what we really want is perl in c:\our\favourite\path\perl.exe and another faction want to use c:\what\they\think\is\standard\perl.exe. We also want to avoid installing perl twice.

Actually we're pretty flexible about our\favourite\path, but what\they\think\is\standard is just abominable.

Oh, and we're not talking about one single machine, rather hundreds.

    The only way to resolve that is with junction.exe.

    Use the distribution syphilis pointed to and install it in one of the paths and then set up a junction to map that to the other path.
