Yes, I mean tlpmgui. I'm sorry for being inprecise.

To verify this I have started 2 more tries to install TL from scratch
at my Win box.
Well--you are right when I check "Perl" as a collection to install. In
this case I will be asked at the beginning of install process and then
I can deny the Perl installation. But when I *uncheck* the Perl
collection before starting the installation Perl will be *installed*
without any asking. (To be precise: I have checked *all* collections
but "Perl" and non-English documentation.)
