Note: Having two or more installations of perl on the same Windows machine is possible but you have to makesure the PATH environment variable holds the directories of the one that you wish to use.As this is slightly more complex in Windows than in Linux we recommend that you uninstall every otherperl distribution and install the one we provide.
