Is the box supposed to come up and disappear, because I got rid of the -v part and it didn't just disappear. Then, is that thing the interpretter, what came up.

    If you ran installer.bat, then that box should disappear after the installation has completed and you hit "Enter" .... but I don't really understand your post at all.

    Open up a new instance of cmd.exe and enter perl -v.

    If it doesn't print (in the cmd.exe window) some information about the build of perl, then the installation has not succeeded as I expected - and you need to tell us:
    1) Precisely what did happen when you ran perl -v
    2) The full name of the file that you downloaded from ActiveState
    3) What steps you took in trying to install perl.

    Note that you need to answer all three questions - not just one or two of them.
