Question: 

When I try to use PerlApp I get the following error: "No perl found at C:\perl\bin\perl.exe" -- but that file is really there. What's going on, and how can I fix it?

Answer: 

This message is usually caused by the directory containing cmd.exe not being found in your PATH environment variable. The usual directory to ensure is there is C:\Windows\System32. If it's missing, simply add it and PerlApp will work as expected.
