This problem already discussed at
but nothing changed in TeXLive 2016.

Nothing changed after 
http://tex.stackexchange.com/a/145766 advice
of Win32::Console::ANSI from CPAN
I have copied file from this package to
and got this: 

Can't locate loadable object for module Win32::Console::ANSI in @INC (@INC conta ins: C:/texlive/2016/tlpkg/tlperl/lib c:/texlive/2016/tlpkg/tlperl/site/lib c:/t exlive/2016/tlpkg/tlperl/lib .) at c:\texlive\2016\texmf-dist\scripts\texcount\t excount.pl line 11.
Compilation failed in require at c:\texlive\2016\texmf-dist\scripts\texcount\tex count.pl line 11.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at c:\texlive\2016\texmf-dist\scripts\texcount \texcount.pl line 14.
C:\texlive\2016\bin\win32\runscript.tlu:679: command failed with exit code 2: perl.exe c:\texlive\2016\texmf-dist\scripts\texcount\texcount.pl

Can there be a patch or update for TeXLive for windows that can make windows users use Perl scripts like texcount without need of additional perl installation or messing with additional packaging for tlperl?
