Since moving to Vista 64 i've had problems finding modules.

I can find Win32 8.10 CGI::Session
but does anyone know how i can find/install it on Win64 8.10???

I suppose I could install Perl32 but Vista64 would stick it under "Program Files (x86)" directory which would break all my old "c:\perl" scripts.

I'd concider using 5.8.8 Win64 if it's availble there.

Any other way to keep login sessions?

Why isn't Session included in the basic package? It's hard to CGI without it!

Heeeeelp! :(

I tried making my own session routine with CGI::Cookie


print header(-cookie=>[$cookie1,$cookie2]);

kills/croaks any utf8 text loading in through

open (FILE, "<:utf8",$file);

In the end I gave up trying to find a Perl Win64 8.10 repository and just got Perl Win32 8.10 up and running instead for an easier life :)

I just hope it doesn't croak with 4Gb+ RAM while it outside "C:\Program Files (x86)" and in C:\Perl instead.

Have you used CGI:Session and tried compiling with PerlApp? I'm trying to do that but using the resulting exe on another system with no Perl present fails. I have to remove all references to CGI:Session to get it running at all. Any experience with them both?
