Hello, I couldn't find this "bug" on the Active bugs list, so I thought I would report it. After installing Strawberry Perl v5.12.3 on Windows 7, I was unable to run common commands in a command prompt window (i.e. ping, ipconfig, etc., would result in, "... not recognized as internal or external command"). I tracked this down to a missing semi-colon (';') at the end of the information that the installer added to the PATH environment variable: C:\strawberry\perl\bin must be: C:\strawberry\perl\bin; Not sure when Windows became touchy about ending the string with a semi-colon, but once I updated the PATH contents to include it, I was again able to run ping, ipconfig, etc. Best regards, John Schortz

What exact version are you talking about (MSI, ZIP, portable)? Could you send the output of: perl -V::uname

Also please send the output of: echo %PATH%

Really strange.

Please try to uninstall strawberry 5.12.x (+do manual PATH cleanup afterwards just to be sure), the install 5.14.2.1 which has improved PATH manipulation on install time.

1. Uninstalled Strawberry Perl v5.12.3 on Windows 7. 2. Manual PATH cleanup was necessary - uninstall did not remove any of the "C:\strawberry\*;" directories from system PATH variable, i.e. C:\strawberry\c\bin;C:\strawberry\perl\site\bin;C:\strawberry\perl\bin; 3. Values of PATH variables after uninstall/cleanup: System: C:\Program Files (x86)\HP SimplePass 2011\x64;C:\Program Files (x86)\HP SimplePass 2011\;;C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Roxio Shared\DLLShared\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Roxio Shared\DLLShared\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Roxio Shared\12.0\DLLShared\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Shared;C:\Program Files (x86)\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\Core-Static;C:\Program Files\Broadcom\Broadcom 802.11\Driver;C:\PROGRA~2\F-Secure\Ssh;C:\Program Files (x86)\winzip;C:\Program Files (x86)\winrar;C:\Program Files (x86)\microsoft office\office11;;c:\program files (x86)\Programs;C:\Program Files (x86)\QuickTime\QTSystem\; User: (I added semi-colon to the end of this string) C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\Common\Tools\WinNT;C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\Common\MSDev98\Bin;C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\Common\Tools;C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\bin;C:\Program Files (x86)\CVSNT\ ==> Now that I think of it, I originally only gave you the value of the system path variable from the edit dialogue, not the entire combined contents of the system + user paths from echo. My bad. Still, the only way to fix the problem I was having was to add the ';' manually after the perl install directories on the end of the system path. 4. Rebooted Windows, not because Windows wanted to be rebooted, only because it's always a good idea to reboot Windows. 5. Downloaded and installed Strawberry Perl 5.14.2.1 (64 bit) for Windows 7. 6. Opened command prompt window and ran ping. OK. Thank you! Show quoted text

Please try to uninstall strawberry 5.12.x (+do manual PATH cleanup afterwards just to be sure), the install 5.14.2.1 which has improved PATH manipulation on install time. -- kmx
