I don't know to what extent you have flexibility with the per  
distribution that you're using, but strawberry perl is probably a  
better solution than activestate at this stage.  The only place that  
activestate is better is if your company need commercial support, even  
then there are probably companies in the catalyst community that can  
provide commercial support for catalyst on windows.

Have a look at http://www.catalystframework.org/calendar/2008/7

For development I'd recommend getting the perl 5.8 distribution from  
strawberryperl.com and installing a non-portable perl (due to a bug  
with subroutine attributes in perl 5.10 development is hard until  
5.10.1 is released as you get unhelpful error messages - 5.10 (which  
includes portable support)  is adequate for deployment though).
