Windows x64

PerlEx usability disclaimer

The PerlEx interpreter was written assuming a Perl 5.8.
The PerlEx documentation is written for IIS 5 and IIS 6.

Any combination other than the above should be considered "Experimental".

PerlEx is provided in the ActivePerl installers without support.
- Using PerlEx on Windows versions which are undocumented will require extensive manual intervention, if it is possible at all.
- Versions of ActivePerl beyond 5.8 and modules written for Perls beyond 5.8 are likely to include changes in Perl that are incompatible with PerlEx.

PPM seems to hang when first synchronizing and takes > 2GB of memory

Just installed latest version of Perl community x64 edition on Windows 7.
ActivePerl-5.24.1.2402-MSWin32-x64-401627
The PPM takes forever synchronizing, with no feedback at all. Memory increases constantly, and is now nearing 3GB! with one CPU core at a full 100%. I just killed the process.

Update: in this version PPM works:
ActivePerl-5.22.3.2204-MSWin32-x64-401627

Issues setting up GCC and GDB with Activestate

Hi,

I am having issues configuring GCC/GDB with Activestate perl (v5.22.3 built for MSWin32-x64-multi-thread). Installing the toolchain works well (ppm install mingw) and I can build the module (perl, XS, C) in question, but it crashes at runtime. The same module compiles and runs under strawberry perl and doesn't crash. I am trying to track down the cause of the crash, but I can't get GDB to produce any decent output:

(gdb) bt
#0  0x000000006865b3a8 in ?? ()
#1  0x0000000000725db9 in ?? ()
#2  0x0000000000725d08 in ?? ()
#3  0xffffffffffffffff in ?? ()

PerlApp created executable not running with nonexec permission on /tmp directory

Hi,

We are using PerlApp to create freestanding executable from perl script.
When the executable built with PerlApp runs, it extracts its dynamic object files in the /tmp/pdk directory. However, it is not working on those systems which have some security permission like nonexec and non writable on /tmp directory.

Our application run on different ports and the problem is same on Window,Linu and AIX platform.

PERL.exe failures

We recently bought a product that uses PERL to execute a GUI. All that I know is vendor product executes PERL.exe and fails with below errors. This is on Win 2012 64-bit.

We first had 5.22.1 32-bit running on windows 2012 64-bit server. Later uninstalled active PERL 5.22.1 32-bit version and reinstalled Active PERL 5.22.1 64-bit and increased the desktop heap size to 4096 in the regedit (see below).

%SystemRoot%\system32\csrss.exe ObjectDirectory=\Windows SharedSection=1024,20480,4096

SNMP::INfo

Just installed the latest ActiveState Perl 5.22.1 for Windows (x86), and my application needs SNMP::Info, and this package build has failed per:

https://code.activestate.com/ppm/SNMP-Info/

I need to know how to install this module.

Thanks.
