where to find unbundled 64 bit versions perl512.lib and perl512.dll ?

I have some applications written in C++ (VisualStudio 6) on Windows XP, using perlembed (linked against perlxxx.lib, distributed with perlxxx.dll)
now I need to rewrite my app at 64 bit and I would need to link to 64 bit version of the library, but I need it without installing 64 bit ActiveState Perl, is it available a zip version so I can extract lib and dll as libraries for a cross compilation ?



of course I will recompile at 64 bit with VS 2005

Bad CPU type in executable

Beginner question on running ActivePerl on a PowerMac G5.

I downloaded ActivePerl 5.14.2 and installed it on my OS X 10.5.8 PowerPC mac.

I wanted to ask why I get the error: Bad CPU type in executable

When I type: usr/local/Activeperl-5.14/bin/perl: Bad CPU type in executable


old window downloados

Where can I download active perl 5.14.1 or older?

error with perl512.dll when using perl 5.14

I originally had 5.12 installed, and upgraded to 5.14. I removed 5.12, but when I run perl after installing 5.14, I get an error that states perl512.dll is missing, then the script runs anyways (perl514.dll exists).

The installer does not do much to clean up after itself, so I am wondering what relic is being left behind that would cause me to get errors about 5.12 when 5.14 is installed?

ActivePerl Community License unclarity

I'm a bit unclear about some clauses in the ActivePerl Community License Agreement.

The questions revolve about the scope of "outside use". The license reads:

4. Restrictions.

   1. a. Except as expressly provided herein You may not: (i) permit others outside Your organization to use the Software;

Help Find Access to ActiveState Perl 32-bit

perl510.dll not found

I recently installed ActivePerl 5.14.2 Build 1402 (after uninstalling ActivePerl 5.12) on my Windows XP computer. When I try to use the DateTime module, I get a pop-up window message that perl510.dll is not found. The exact wording of this message is:

"This application has failed to start because perl510.dll was not found. Re-installing this application may fix this problem"

Is anybody else having a similar problem? Any idea how to fix this? Do I need to re-install everything as the message suggests?

Deploying ActivePerl via Group Policy in a Active Directory Network

I am looking to use PerlScript as a WSH engine in an active directory network that I am responsible for, but am running into some problems deploying the MSI to other computers in the network using group policy. I was wondering how other folk are using ActivePerl as a WSH engine on their networks and if there are any tricks to get this working in a large network.
