Can't get the PPM GUI to run. This is on Win 7 64-bit. Tried reinstalling 5.16.2 64-bit, with the same result. PPM command line seems to work. Just the GUI won't run. Tried 5.16.2 x86 and this launches the GUI fine.
The following is in the event log:

I'm using perl v5.12.4 on a Win7 system
Backticks have stopped working. EG:
$cmd=`dir`; now returns a null string.
$cmd=`file.htm`; used to start the default browser on the named file. It no longer does anything.
System("dir"); similarly no longer works.
The commands work fine if entered on the command line or a batch file without perl.
Can anyone suggest a possible reason for this?
Is there some particular file responsible for handling backticks and system() which I might try to replace?
I am installing ActivePerl as part of software build on Amazon AWS. Is there a "response file" (yes, I agree with license terms, this is the installation directory, etc) that I could use to avoid manual installation?
I installed AS perl on my new Win7 machine, but it won't pass command line arguments to @ARGV.
I suspect it's a registry problem in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, but my changes haven't fixed it.
Does anyone know the line to change, and what to put there?
Not sure how this makes any sense but I've got a brand new windows 2008 server and I installed 184.108.40.2060 (latest community edition) and I go to do some updates but nothing can access the internet with it. PPM can't find anything, CPAN can't find anything, there's no proxy configured or need for there to be any, its a direct connection to the internet. I went ahead and tried to use a proxy, that had no effect and still didn't work.
I discovered that my current AS perl, 5.12, is no longer ppm'able [without a business license] so I'm upgrading to 5.16. I'm worried about how that 'upgrade' should/will go. right now perl is installed in c:\perl64. Can I just install the new 5.16 in the same directory and will it basically leave my installed modules and other such along [perhaps needing a big update via ppm, but still there]? Or will I run into problems?
I would like to use ActivePerl occasionally from USB Stick but don't want to install it permanently on a computer.
Is there no "portable" version available for download?
when i tried to install activeperl on my Debian 7 box I received the following error: "perl/bin/perl: 1: perl/bin/perl: Syntax error: Unterminated quoted string"
Please advise how to fix.
