Howdy, When Strawberry Perl 5.10.0 is uninstalled, it doesn't remove the directories it added to the INCLUDE, LIB, and Path environment variables.

As of 5.10.0.3, Strawberry Perl no longer sets the INCLUDE and LIB environment variables, but it is still leaving its paths in Path.

Correct. This is unresolvable at this time due to limitations in Inno Setup. Will be fixed in the new .msi version. Adam K 2008/10/22 Matt Kraai via RT <bug-Perl-Dist-Strawberry@rt.cpan.org>:

As of 5.10.0.6 (the first .msi version) uninstalling Strawberry Perl removes the path entries that the .msi versions add. It does NOT remove path entries from previous versions of Strawberry, unfortunately. :( (I'm looking at January 2010 for that, and that's an entirely different bug) Resolving.
