Windows 7

perlapp (pdk 9) + Win32::GUI::HyperLink = carp error

perl 5.12 / pdk 9

installed package Win32::GUI::HyperLink 0.14 with ppm.

after using perlapp -> make executable :

String found where operator expected at C:/Perl/site/lib/Win32/GUI/HyperLink.pm line 431, near "Carp::carp "Failed opening ""
(Do you need to predeclare Carp::carp?)
syntax error at C:/Perl/site/lib/Win32/GUI/HyperLink.pm line 431, near "Carp::carp "Failed opening ""

line 431 looks like:
Carp::carp "Failed opening ".$self->Url()." ShellExecute($exitval) $^E";

found out, that parentheses will clear the error:

perlapp (pdk 9) + log4perl 1.29 = missing pm

perl 5.12 / pdk 9

installed package log4perl 1.29 with ppm.

made a simple script with log4perl calls inside.

after using perlapp -> make executable :

can't locate LDAPConfigurator.pm

i went to project home of log4perl (http://github.com/mschilli/log4perl)

compared both versions 1.29 from log4perl-home and from ppm activestate : the module 'LDAPConfigurator.pm' is missing in lib\Log\Log4perl\Config

is the package from activestate (ppm) broken ?

ODBC with MS Access under Windows7

My application reads data from a ODBC source (MS SQL Server) and updates data in a ODBC destination (MS Access). The application is running on that computer where the Access DB resides. Everything went fine with Windows XP.
Now we switched to Windows 7. I successfully created 32bit ODBCs with syswow64\odbcad32.exe.

I installed Perl 5.12.1 for X64. I still can read data from the DB hosted by the SQL server but when I try to open the Access based DBs, I get a message that there is an architecture mismatch.

perl won't execute in browser

I can run Perl from the command line and perl scripts.
But I can't get them to run from a PHP exec call, I don't get errors all I get is a blank page???

The code is:

<?php

exec("perl -v");

?>

My system is the following:
Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
Apache 2.2.15 x86
Php 5.3.2 x86
Active Perl 5.12.1.1201 x86

What am I missing, the various perl scripts have run fine on my XP system in the past as well as on webhosts running Unix/Linux.

At my wits end????

Can't find perl510.dll - possible bug in PDK 9.0 ?

I loaded Perl 5.12.1 today along with PDK 9.0. Before installing I completely removed Perl 5.10 as noted in the release notes. I loaded the three modules I needed using PPM and all of my source code ran great in the Komodo debug mode. I then compiled a native executable on my 64-bit Windows 7 laptop. It ran great!

OLE Automation of Adobe Acrobat 9

I have a problem with the following code snippet, neither $app, or, $doc get initialized. I have tried the same code on both Window 7 (x64), Windows 2003 (32 bit) and Windows XP3 (32 bit) (Virtual Machine running under Windows 7 x64).

I have Adobe Acrobat 9 PRO (trial) installed. I have verified the classes are available by viewing the registry on all 3 OS's.

Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AcroExch.App is present.

How do I install DriveInfo???

How can I download/install a version of Win32::DriveInfo for Windows 7?

I dont know much about PPM and how it works; It doesn't seem to have DriveInfo 'out of the box'

Eclipse, Debugger and PadWalker

Hi,

I just installed EPIC and PadWalker. Now I can use the debugger in Eclipse, but it doesn't display my local variables... It seems like PadWalker isn't installed correctly. I checked my installation in ppm. PadWalker is marked as "installed". Do I have to do anything else?

Thanks!

401 error compiling for solaris-sparc

I'm using the 32-bit PDK compiler in Windows 7 and compiling some code for various operating systems. When I get to solaris-sparc-32 and solaris-sparc-64, I get an error message about RTF-Tokenizer. How do I fix this? I don't get this error if I compile for linux or windows.

perlapp -target solaris-sparc-64

IE Can't Load PerlScript Engine

I am running Windows 7 - 64bit with McAfee antivirus software. When I try to run the Active Perl OLE browser (in either Internet Explorer or Firefox), I get the error message:

"Internet Explorer could not load the PerlScript engine. This is most likely due to the value of the "Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe" security setting of the "Local intranet" zone. PerlScript inside IE will only run on Windows XP SP2 and later if this setting is set to Enable. Setting it to Prompt doesn't seem to work."
