The Perl installation is not in the Path environment variable. Add the following location to the Path environment variable:

C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware VI Remote CLI\Perl\bin

- Right click My Computer
- Select Properties from the context menu
- Select the Advance tab
- Click Environment Variables button
- Select Path in the System Variables and click Edit
- Append ;C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware VI Remote CLI\Perl\bin to the Path
- Click OK
- Click OK
- Click OK

Exit from current command prompt.

Start a new command prompt for the Path to take effect
