You never told us about this problem.

Actually currently Windows is most beginner friendly platform for Padre and
Padre has an installer on Windows. It currently brings a whole
Strawberry Perl with it
and it needs to be the only perl on the system but there are plans to
create a version
that would hide the fact that it is in Perl and would work well
together with any
other Perl on the system.

Aha, I understand. This might be the issue. I use ActivePerl and not 
Strawberry. I've tried Strawberry Perl but I found very many modules I 
couldn't install with it, the PPM under that distro of Perl has less 
features than ActiveState's one, I also need ActiveState PDK that also 
requires ActivePerl, so...
