New MSI Installer for ActivePerl

Effective today, ActiveState has replaced our Windows MSI installer for ActivePerl with a more modern version. This change affects:

  • ActivePerl 5.26 and ActivePerl 5.28 Community Edition (CE)
  • Window 10 users only

Please note that EXE and ZIP files installers are not affected at this time.

The new MSI installer:

  • Is a web-style installer, which will provide a smaller initial download
  • Includes the ActiveState Platform command line interface, the State Tool

The State Tool provides for simpler runtime management, including updating your runtime environment by adding or removing modules, as well as virtual environment support, cross-platform scripting, and other developer tools. Check out all of the State Tool highlights
