The biggest obstacle is getting Perl to run correctly in the Windows environment. Does perl resolve correctly? What's the output from command prompt when you type:
Code: Select all
perl -v

It seems like you have set up a wrapper for .pl files:
Code: Select all
[/settings/external scripts/wrappings]
; Perl scripts
pl = "C:\\\\strawberry\\\\perl\\\\bin\\\\perl.exe" scripts\\\\%SCRIPT% %ARGS%

But aren't defining your perl script as a "wrapped script". In order for the wrapping to apply, you will need to define your external script under the "wrapped scripts" section like so:

Code: Select all
# A list of wrapped scripts (ie. script using a template mechanism).
[/settings/external scripts/wrapped scripts]

Refer to this section of the NSClient++ documentation to get your wrapping to apply to your .pl script: ... ed-scripts
