Did you install Strawberry 5.22 because you have some other use for perl 
on >your computer? If so, can your other software work with the version 
of perl that comes with >Demeter? That is, do you really need Strawberry 
5.22? Executive summary: I think you problem is >binary compatibility

Dear Bruce,
The timeline of this problem was as follows:
1) Demeter was working fine;
2) One day I couldn't run any of the Demeter software - error message "Per interpreter has stopped working;
3) Reinstallation of Demether - the problem is still there;
4) Installation of perl (in other folder, not the same as Demeter) - the problem is still there;
5) Mail to mailing list;
6) Deinstallation of Demether and Perl;
7) Installation of Demeter.
Unfortunately the problem is still there. I receive the same error message.
