Can you please try on any failing laptop to:
- in TEXMFROOT (...\texlive\2011\) create a file bla.pl with the
  following content:
	$^W = 1;
	use strict;
	use Tk;
	Tk::MainWindow->new(-width => 730, -height => 480);

- in the same directory create a file bla.bat wiht the following contetn:
	set "path=%~dp0tlpkg\tlperl\bin;%path%"
	set "PERL5LIB=%~dp0tlpkg\tlperl\lib"
	perl "%~dpn0" %*

and then please run
If that works, it should show an empty window of 730x480 dimensions.
If that works, I don't know why it should fail with install-tl-wizard,
but it is a first test.

Best wishes
