The version You mentioned is the one from the cygwin, not from activestate
This is the public msi package from activestate version 
v5.8.4 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
and it comes with wperl and perl living in the same directory
The facts You told make me believe, that the activestate-perl isn't within
Your path at all, thus "no completion for wp<TAB>" isn't really surprising.
