Add your path to Perl. 
# hint: easiest/safest method is to copy/paste to text editor, make
edits, then paste back.

Mine Path entries look like this:
C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\;C:\Program Files\Support
m Files\Common Files\Roxio Shared\DLLShared;C:\MSSQL7\BINN;C:\Program
ad;C:\Perl\5.8.3\bin;C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server

IIRC, you can look at your path in the shell typing

	echo %PATH%

or something.  I don't recall where or how to modify the default.
