You’ll find tips on Komodo’s use of the Perl Debugger over in the Komodo Community, but be aware that Komodo Version 7 has been unsupported since Komodo 8 was released, and we are now only supporting issues on Komodo 12.
The OS update or a related Security/AntiVirus update may have altered, blocked, or removed some of your configuration, since that module is part of the remote debugging package.
By “Compiled”, do you mean that you used the old Perl Dev Kit to wrap the script into an executable? That functionality was not part of Komodo. It came from the Perl Dev Kit which was sold separately.
We have seen system updates breaking existing files created with the Dev Kit for at least five years. The Dev Kit was discontinued in 2016, among other reasons being that any file created with The Perl Dev Kit acts like malware. Since 2016, we have been advising that users find alternative methods to deploy Perl scripts so that they don’t experience problems where updates permanently break existing tooling without warning.
