Executing a perl script from Windows 7

I have a perl script that I would like to execute simply by 
double-clicking on its name from a Windows filemanager window. (That is, 
I do not want to use the command line at all, nor do I want to use an icon.)

Eg, myscript.pl

I tried using this


as the first line in the script but when I double-click the script, 
Windows opens it in a text editor. (I suppose I have .pl associated with 
that editor!)

How do I fix this?
