When packing the script into an exe what tool are you using? If you are using PerlApp from activestate you may need to update to a later version as I think it adds a manifest to the exe which overrides any file based manifest. You can manually change the manifest with a tool such as reshacker to force it to use XP styles.
As a side the manifest file should always match the name of the exe being run.
