ActiveState Perl 5.28 Community version. Build completed in AS Platform.
Built .msi was downloaded then installed to host, Windows 7 Desktop 64Bits. Perl runtime configured on AS Platform user’s account seems to build, install to host and work in free-of-troubles way.
Actually user needs to have Perl environment in its MS Visual Studio Code, same host as mentioned above. MS VS Code Perl Language Server and Debugger by Gerald Richter is - among others - added to AS Perl runtime.
MS Visual Studio Code (current release) installation here needs to be populated with built AS Perl runtime. It is unclear which are all requirements to be fulfilled, steps to be conducted and in which sequence.
ActiveState Platform extension has been installed to MS VS Code. Former one asks for installation of State tool which however fails.
