Hi All,

I am getting an error for the perl scripts using Wx into my program.
Here is the error it is being thrown in the console :
wxmsw28u_core_VC_custom.dll is missing.

Could not able to find out how to rectify this? Please help.

I had the same issue and resolved it by installing WX and Alien-wxWidgets from another repository.

The repository I used to fix the issue is;


The Repository that did not work was the ActiveState one (default in PPM)

I installed ActivePerl 5.14.2 on Windows 7 64 bit.

After doing:

ppm repo add http://www.wxperl.co.uk/repo28
ppm install wx

Everything seems ok.

But when I run a perl script that is using wxPerl, it doesn?t find wxmsw28u_core_vc_custom.dll.

It's the same behaviour when I use http://www.wxperl.co.uk/repo29 instead.

I look at C:\Perl64\site\lib\Alien\wxWidgets and there is no msw_2_8_12?\lib\*.lib.

With another installation (Windows 7 b4 bit, ActivePerl 5.14.1), there is
C:\Perl64\site\lib\Alien\wxWidgets\ msw_2_8_12_uni_gcc_3_4\lib\*.lib.
(uni_gcc != vc ?)

It's the same behaviour when I don't use http://www.wxperl.co.uk/repo28/29 at all.

What can I do to make wxPerl working with ActivePerl 5.14?
