Do you mean you copied the Perl interpreter on a different machine ? I think you have to reinstall it if the os is different (and XP and 2000 are definitely different...).
If you don't have a VisualStudio environment, you can try with PxPerl ( that can be built with different compilers (and comes with a lot of stuff and a nice editor too...).
At least install from scratch the perl interpreter, then should be nice to reinstall also Prima so to perform all tests at installation time, when installation is fine you can start running your scripts.
