hsfrey has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I copied Active State perl system and my programs from an XP machine to a new Win7 box.

Command line arguments on the Win7 machine are not transmitted. @ARGV is null.

So I installed a new AS perl64 on the Win7 machine. Same problem! @ARGV is null.

So I looked at the registry & environment. There are no perl related variables in the environment. In the registry, HKLM\Software\Perl shows
(default) C:\Perl64\
BinDir C:\Perl64\bin\perl.exe

Any suggestions as to how I can get my command line arguments into @ARGV?
