I don't have an active license for perlapp so I've been using PP. Reshacker looks good, as long as the end result is the same it should do fine, thanks.

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.
