The error message indicates that the installer has been corrupted. Since all of the installers you tried do the same thing, it's probably your AntiVirus at work. Turn off your AntiVirus, flush your Browser cache, and download a fresh copy of the ActivePerl installer.

Save the installer to your Desktop. (Do not run it from within the Browser or from your Downloads folder).

Run the installer with a userID that is a local Administrator.

I implemented the recommendations, but my problem is not resolved.

The downloaded installer file parameters:
MD5 hash: 079ab522c95a711fd0ddba62274db3ad
FileName: ActivePerl-

The checksum is good, so it's not getting mangled on route.

install/BD0A98C is the bootstrap location for this installer. You can watch the folder fill as the installer goes through "Creating new files".
perl.exe will appear in the bin folder of the bootstrap area, and it should remain there until the installer completes moving the files. The installer uses that perl.exe to install itself.

-If perl.exe is in the bin folder, but can't be read, make sure you're actually using the "Les" ID. If you're using the "Les" ID and the installer can't read those files, you have a Windows setup problem. Check your local policy settings. "Les" might not be allowed to execute files from the AppDir folder, for example.

-If perl.exe is not in the bin folder, or shows up for a short time but disappears before the folder completely empties, an external program is interfering with the extraction of ActivePerl. Since disabling the AntiVirus didn't help, you might need to un-install the AntiVirus and reboot to really disable it fully.
