Missing modules during cross-compile

Hi all,

I'm having trouble cross-compiling my Perl script from Windows 7 (64bit) to Windows 32, Linux 32/64 due to missing modules. It works great on a native compile.

I noticed that Perl modules exist in "C:\Perl64\lib" and "site\lib", but not under the AppData locations. My guess is that the libs under AppData are some sort of cache.. but maybe this is where I am going wrong.

Below are the types of errors I get when I attempt to cross-compile; this case for Linux 64:

error: Can't locate Mail\Field.pm
refby: ...\1603\linux-x86-64\site\lib\MIME\Entity.pm line 230
refby: ...\1603\linux-x86-64\site\lib\MIME\Head.pm line 121
refby: ...\1603\linux-x86-64\site\lib\MIME\Field\ParamVal.pm line 68
error: Can't locate Mail\Header.pm
refby: ...\1603\linux-x86-64\site\lib\MIME\Head.pm line 120,144
error: Can't locate Mail\Internet.pm
refby: ...\1603\linux-x86-64\site\lib\Email\Abstract\MailInternet.pm line 17,23
refby: ...\1603\linux-x86-64\site\lib\MIME\Entity.pm line 229

When I attempt to manually add a module by right clicking "Added Modules" and inputting the proper module, such as "Mail::Field" it will work fine, until I change the target platform, then it says:

PerlApp is not able to locate Mail\Field.pm using the current module search patch.

However my search path includes "C:\Perl64\lib" and "site\lib" and Main\Field.pm is right there.

Can anyone please help point me in the right direction?

Thank you,

I'm also seeing this at the top of the output box:

readline() on unopened filehandle DATA at /Win32/API/Type.pm line 43.
Win32::API::parse_prototype: WARNING unknown output parameter type 'int' at /Win32/API.pm line 310.

I fixed this by coping the C:\Perl64\site\lib\Mail\ directory into my APPDATA build dir.

I imagine this wouldn't work in all scenarios, so I'd be very interested in any theories as to the root cause, and how to fix it.

Copied AppData into the local working directory.
Look like some sort of cache, its not updating.
