Re: Strawberry Perl - installing an older versionby syphilis (Bishop)
|on Mar 10, 2020 at 02:45 UTC||Need Help??|
A newer version of Strawberry Perl (64-bit) is already installed.
I handle multiple versions of Strawberry Perl by installing the portable zip instead of the MSI. Just grab strawberry-perl-126.96.36.199-64bit-portable.zip (or strawberry-perl-188.8.131.52-32bit-portable.zip for 32-bit architecture), cd to
and unzip it.
Having done that, executing C:\Users\ken\local\opt\strawberry_perl\5_026_003\install\portableshell.bat will open a cmd.exe shell with the PATH already set to point at the 5.26.3 installation.
I can remove these — in fact, I half suspect that will be necessary ...
I believe that won't be necessary - the shell opened by potrtableshell.bat will prepend the pre-existing PATH with the location of perl-5.26.3.
Any other shell that's not created by portableshell.bat will still point to perl-5.30.0.
