I never use the Windows Installer myself, like you I have a pre-existing
version of Perl. Most probably, although I haven't actually tried it
with this installer, you can open the installer's archive with a program
such as 7-zip, which is a useful tool to have installed anyway, and
extract the various folders manually, as desired.
My arrangement works for me and is thus:
Then you have to ensure that the directories ...
... are included in your path, and that *.pl files are associated with
being run by Perl.
*These are historical and may not still be required.
