If it works with a bat file and not with a perl file, this most likely
has nothing to do with mrtg. Are you able to run the perl script from
the command line? Or from a bat file perhaps? Could there be a problem
with user rights? Are your PATH settings correct?

As a workaround: call a bat file from mrtg and let this bat file run
the perl script. When this works you can modify your bat file to see
where things go wrong.
