I just upgraded to Perl 5.16.3 (on Win 2003) due to an "ActivePerl Heartbleed Security Update" email from activestate. After the upgrade my plx scripts stopped working on my web site. I checked IIS and it was set correctly to map plx to c:\perl\bin\perlis.dll.
I checked and perlis.dll did not exist! I ran the installer again and checked PERL ISAPI and I got: "Use of this feature requires a Business Edition license". WTF!? When did this start? Can anyone help me with this?
I'm trying to automate ActivePerl installations on Windows, referencing the following document:
What I've noticed is that the TARGETDIR is actually a base directory. If I want to install the win32-x64 ActivePerl to c:\perl, I can't do that. Specifying a TARGETDIR of c:\perl ends up creating c:\perl\perl64.
I am working on migration of a legacy application that uses ActivePerl on Windows 2000 server.
Can ActivePerl run on 32-bit or 64 bit Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2012?
I would like to develop a desktop app for windows 8.1 using ActivePerl. The most recent version of ActivePerl 5.18.2 depends on MSVCRT.DLL - as far as I understand MSVCRT.DLL cannot be used in a Windows 8.1 store app, MSVCR110.DLL and related DLLs should be used instead. Since Microsoft is forcing the move to Window 8.1 will ActivePerl for Windows 8.1 be compiled against MSVCR110.DLL and related runtime libraries?
this question has been resolved via a support ticket.
I tried yesterday update to newest AP 220.127.116.111 and have not succeed to get it working.
Firstly uninstalled completely previous perl. Then new install to the same directory, and perl is crashing on most of my existing scripts that were working with perl 5.16. I think the bug which was already present in AP 5.18.1 is still present (wrong linkage to perl516.dll). Anyway I didnot manage any of 5.18 perls fully functional and I did update this software many times. So I assume there's something wrong with all 5.18 builds.
I work for a company which is currently using AP 5.8.822 on their 2003 box and have quite a few Perl scripts. I see in the AS 5.16 documentation, it says build 16xx is incompatible with previous version's binaries, though I'm not sure what that entails.
If we were to upgrade to 5.16.x as I have on my PC, would it break all of the existing Perl scripts written and used in the 5.8.822 environment? I would like to upgrade so I can use the remove_tree function and output to a scalar variable for logging purposes, as opposed to just the spray and pray of rmtree.
I have been using active state perl for over 8 years.
The person that setup the dev servers have since left.
We purchased the latest version of PDK.
I installed a new server with PDK 9.2.1 and Perl 5.16.3
The PERLLIB ENV is set to c:\Perl64\site\lib and c:\Perl64\lib
When I compile the perl script to exe everything works fine.
When I execute the script I get the following error:
Can't locate arybase.pm in @INC (@INC contains: C:\dev\perl\) at /Net/Telnet.pm line 536
It is almost like the compiler don't add the libraries to the exe.
I asked this question on various ActiveState forums and in an email to ActiveState support with no reply. I'll try here. Can anybody say when 5.18.2 will be released?
Please share the link details where I can download the community edition of Active Perl for Solaris 19 (X86).
