The requirements in your link do not compare with XAMPP.

Read the C:\xampp\readme-en.txt file for the components included in XAMPP or the readme can be found here:

Best to use your skills and try and adapt the software to suit XAMPP or download and install manually the required components mentioned in your link, then the instructions will be easy to follow.

This is not really an issue for these support forums for XAMPP installation and running issues.
Try the SQL-Ledger forums for specifics with regard to installation.

Second Opinion:

A. Sharley is right, this is primarily 'their issue'.

B. Your biggest challenge is going to be getting Postgres to work.

read this item I found ... n-windows/

C. The Perl stuff should be OK, although the shebang line will be different of course. Perl is quite standardized. I have not worked with the Strawberry distribution, but I'm the 'server geek' for the YaBB project and we have had users get YaBB running on Strawberry. The Perl that is distributed with XAMPP is 'pure Perl' (Larry Wall -- the originator of Perl) , so no probs there.

D. Lastly, any time you go outside a developer's guidelines, you are 100% on your own. There is absolutely no way, other than experimentation, to predict what will and will not work. This is because you cannot evaluate the dependencies in the code (what tools/methods/syntax are specific to a particular software release).

Good luck
