I have Strawberry installed on my Windows 7 machine and I can state that 
perl -v gives no indication of whether it is Activestate or Strawberry.

You can look for the path, though. If it's Strawberry, it'll say 
strawberry in the path. Here's my path.

PATH=C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Windows 
Live;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Windows 
Live;C:\Program Files (x86)\Active State Komodo Edit 
Files (x86)\Windows Live\Sha
red;C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Performance 
Files (x86)\Sikuli X\libs

Activestate Komodo Edit is in c:\Program Files\ActiveState Komodo Edit 
6\ in my system, so while I cannot assert for sure that ActiveState 
would put Perl in Program Files, I can suggest you can look there.

Path is a CMD command and won't work with Powershell. I don't know the 
equivalent Powershell command.
