Assuming that the net installer did not get corrupted, iso will not
help - it has the same Perl. Your options are:
- find the source of the problem (easier said then done); it's likely
something wrong with your system, since nobody else reported it
- replace our Perl with another one; Strawberry is known to work in
our setup and we are going to switch to it in the near future
- try Cygwin
