Perl v5.10 + IIS v6 = perl scripts do not work

Posted by superduper on 2008-01-04 04:40

I've just installed the ActiveState Perl v5.10 on Windows 2003 sp2 ( IIS v6 ) and now the cgi scripts do not work any more ( dll initialization error ) . Before the upgrade of perl 822 everything was fine . The configuration of IIS is just fine , script mapping , mime types , web service extensions , everything is fine .
Before install the new version also had deleted the c:\Perl just to be sure .

So , I rename the c:\Perl dir and copy the previous version 822 from an other machine . Guess what , the scrips start working as expected . Thats why I am pretty sure this is a bug of 5.10

If I am missing something obvious , please help .

There is a known bug in ActivePerl which affects operation of PerlScript, as well as PerlIS, and several other utilities. This will be corrected in build 1002.

Any idea when build 1002 will appear ?

Noticed that build 1002 has been posted.
