Perl lib version (5.20.2) doesn’t match executable ‘perl.exe’ version (5.20.1) at C:/Perl/lib/Config.pm line 62.

When using Active Perl 5.20.2 and PP to compile perl files we faced the following error:

Perl lib version (5.20.2) doesn’t match executable ‘perl.exe’ version (5.20.1) at C:/Perl/lib/Config.pm line 62.

This apparently is a bug. The solution for us was to download and install Active Perl 5.20.1. Since this version is no longer available on the Activeperl website you can get it from download.com
