[texworks] Lost Going Native

I've been using the Windows pre-installed TeXworks software for years and
have become modestly fluent in it, but saw recently that it was version
0.3.0 when there's a version 0.4.something out there so I figured I'd try
it, which meant downloading and installing.  However, now when I run it, it
gives me an error about not having a Perl interpreter.  Well of course I
don't--I don't even know what that is.

So I've spent the last hour+ trying to figure out what I need to do.  I
downloaded and installed TeXLive and latexmk, though not really
understanding what any of this stuff is, and I still get the same error
when I try to compile a LaTeX document. So... help?  I'm just really lost
swimming in a sea of words and concepts I don't understand.

Thank you,
