Personally speaking, I have never used (nor wanted to use)
TeXify, LaTeXMK or any similar pre-scripted approach, simply
because I prefer to (a) think about, and (b) be in control
of, whatever set of activities I am about to perform. That
said, obtaining a good reliable Perl for Windows could not
be simpler : just visit the ActiveState web site and follow
their instructions for downloading and installing Active Perl.
