Hate to second guess ya, but the only time I've see perl complain about a missing termcap (and I run perl on Vista, Win7, and 2008 R2 servers), is when there *is* a missing termcap. That'd be a cygwin thing, not a perl thing. So I'm guessing the cygwin installations are not the same after all.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

From my guess, it looks like there is some issue with the platform where you are running the script.
In this case cygwin.
The perl script must be correct (if it is running fine elsewhere)

Try fixing your cygwin as suggested above.

You can do one more thing to check if the script runs on Vista:
Install a perl software like say ActivePerl (I use that on my Vista with no problems)
And then try running the script with that. If that works then script has nothing to do with Vista!
