Greetings, mtl3 and welcome to the monastery.
The following instructions provide another way to install Perl-Gtk2 on the Windows platform. See, FAQ question #4.
I tested on fresh Strawberry Perl installations v22.214.171.124, v126.96.36.199, and v188.8.131.52. During the Gtk2 installation, a new window may appear asking if you want to move the themes directory. If so, wait for the installation to finish before answering the question.
The ppm_req script, mentioned in FAQ #4, is found here.
> ppm install PPM::Sisyphusion
Installing package 'PPM-Sisyphusion'...

> perl ppm_req Gtk2 # <-- provides a list of ppm commands to run
> ppm install PPM::Sisyphusion::Cairo_font
> ppm install Cairo
> ppm install Gtk2
The following dependencies are installed automatically.
> ppm install PPM::Sisyphusion::Pango_dll
> ppm install PPM::Sisyphusion::Glib_dll
> ppm install Glib
> ppm install PPM::Sisyphusion::Gtk2_dll
> ppm install PPM::Sisyphusion::Gtk2_theme
> ppm install PPM::Sisyphusion::Cairo_dll
> ppm install Pango
Tk may be installed similarly, via PPM under Strawberry Perl v184.108.40.206,
but not later Perl releases at this time. Trying will not hurt and simply emit a message stating not yet available.
> ppm install PPM::Sisyphusion # <-- skip if already done
> ppm install Tk
> ppm install Tk::Zinc
The list of Sisyphusion packages is found here.
