Doe the Perl Dev Kit work on Windows 7?

Does the PDK debugger work on windows 7? The system requirements state "Windows XP or later" which might imply Windows 7. More likely the "or later" points to service releases. Please clarify.

I am a long-time user of the PDK and have never run into a wall before. Here are the product versions that I am (unsuccessfully) attempting with:

perl 5, version 12, subversion 4 (v5.12.4) built for MSWin32-x64-multi-thread
ActiveState Perl Dev Kit 9.0.1 Build 293382 (64-bit)

I have searched the documentation but can find no hints.

For others who read this, the issue above is that the PDK debugger cannot run in 64-bit mode, so it is not included in the 64-bit version of the PDK.

Our recommended solution for 64-bit debugging is Komodo IDE.
