i don't recall if it's v12 that i've used,but it runs relatively well -
just make sure you have linux compatibility layer enabled.

i hope you really didn't expect something useful out of that call ... :)

have u tried changing that call to perl to the /usr/local/bin/perl ? 

at least in some versions I tried, all you have to do is run the exec ,
