Aehmmmmmm.... that is bad. If your Windows does not have a cmd.exe then
we cannot do anything.

I cannot help here, what is failing for you is a simple line
	my $cwd = `cd`;
which calls a cmd.exe and in that cd. If that does not work, I don't
know what is hosed.

Best wishes

The length of time it takes to get served in a camera shop. Hence,
also, how long we will have to wait for the abolition of income tax or
the Second Coming.
