Have you tried creating a shortcut to Perl and renaming it to the
name of the Perl script and add the path to the perl script as an
arg ?

Set Properties->Shortcut->Target to something like :

C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe C:\Home\Me\test.pl         (adjust the arg to point to your script)

And test.pl:

use strict;
use Win32;

my $msg = '';
$msg .= "$_\n" foreach @ARGV;
Win32::MsgBox($msg);	# print args in MsgBox
