in reply to no feedback when running a script?

my $current = `date +%m/%d/%Y`;

You should try running that command from your Windows cmd prompt:

C:\>date +%m/%d/%Y The system cannot accept the date entered. Enter the new date: (yy-mm-dd) C:\>

So that (it wanting you to enter the new date you want used) could be the problem.
