Does anyone know - will perl2exe (or a different package to create an .exe)
allow a perl script to be launched from windows explorer EVEN THOUGH the
script is written for unix (and is sitting on a unix netowrk drive)?

I have many perl scripts my users would find useful but all written to run
on unix (Sun).  I've a large number of users who have neither the rights,
permissions, desire, or know-how to execute a perl script from a unix
prompt.  So I'm tasked with coddling these windoze people. I'd like to allow
them to simply "double click" the .exe which launches the perl script.

I'd like to avoid any additional installations of perl. Idea's?
