Because when I want to run Perl, I want ActiveState Perl 5.8.0 installed in C:opt\asperl and I don't want any chance of that not happening. This is the
most mindless way of getting that to happen. And after supporting three (yes THREE) versions of Perl on multiple machines in different locations at
work (not I didn't set it up, I just inherited it and I'm working on fixing it ), the last thing I need is to cause myself ANY problems at home.

Oh, and when I said "whack", I really meant "uninstall using setup.exe".
