Perl for IA64 Windows

Posted by evansma on 2009-03-19 08:02

I currently produce applications for x86 and x64 Windows servers using PDK for 32 bit and 64 servers, but now have the requirement to support IA64 Itanium Windows servers. On an IA64 W2K3 development server the x64 apps will not run and error with :-

The image file xxx.exe is valid, but is for a machine type other than the current machine.

The 32 bit compiled apps however run fine in compatability mode.

My question is, is it possible to compile native IA64 Perl apps for Windows with ActivePerl and PDK? If yes please can someone give me some pointers.

Thanks in advance
