Arguments not getting to Perl in 2012R2

Just installed 5.20.1 on Windows Server 2012R2. The product works fine but we're seeing the following weirdness the normal associations are not passing parameters. In fact they were being ignored altogether until we an association in UI as well!

Given:

use 5.12.0;

say join ":", @ARGV;

Let's test it:

F:\temp>showArgs.pl my arguments
 
F:\temp>perl showArgs.pl my arguments
my:arguments
 
F:\temp>assoc .pl
.pl=Perl
 
F:\temp>ftype Perl
Perl="C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe" "%1" %*

I am using Windows 2012 R2 SE. Does ActivePerl support this OS? It hangs on "Configuring Perl Package Manager Status. Can anyone help? I am not sure if ActivePerl-5.16.3.1604-MSWin32-x64-298023 package supports Windows 2012 R2 SE.

Windows 32 bit perl 5.16.3.1604 install doesn't contain "site/lib" in @INC

I've just installed ActivePerl 5.16.3.1604 and when I run perl -V, I see that @INC doesn't include the "site/lib" directory? This is the end of the perl -V output:

Error / bug -- Unable to install packages

I'm using Active Perl and the Perl Package Manager for a project for a grad student. I am using ActivePerk 5.16.2 Build 1602. I'm on Windows 7

I'm trying to install 2 packages, but the "Mark for Install" button is grey-ed out and I can't click (similarly, if I search for the package name and right click it, I see the option to Install it but it is also grey-ed out). The packages I would like to install are for 2.30 and 1.13

Every time I load PPM, I get this window:

Community License Terms

In the context of a code quality reporting toolkit and the recent change in community licensing term for Active Perl, there are few questions that we are faced with:
1. Does the use of Active Perl during the development of an internal quality reporting toolkit still qualify under community licensing?
2. Can the project teams using the toolkit still use community license to use the Active Perl on their internal build machines in order to use the toolkit?
3. What are the approximate pricing for the Enterprise License (~100 installs) and OEM License.

Automated installation in NON-ADMIN environment

Hi!

I am using ActivePerl in an automated / continous integration system (jenkins).

During the job i try to install ActivePerl on Windows / Linux machines.

This is ok for linux, cause ActivePerl is provided as package, and installer has several commandline options to install as non-root user

On Windows it is hell!

1) Officialy only msi packages are available. I took me some time to detect, that there are also zip files availabe for download. Couldn't these be added to the download page? Or the folder be linked there to get them?
