Hey All. Sorry for this broad/general question, but my schedules are very tight nowadays and maybe somebody can save me the time of researching this question. QUESTION: What’s the deal with Windows 10 Pro 64-bit and trying to run ActivePERL 5.26 (or 5.28)? The last time I installed a working version of ActivePERL was in 2017 (5.??) on a Win 7 PC. Everything worked fine on that build, and on the build before that (2010)… [and on the build that I had before that (2004)].
Now that I have finally upgraded to Win 10 64x and installed ActivePERL 5.26, I can’t seem to get much of ANYTHING to work well. Is there a short answer to that? Is it a Win 64x security thing?
The download build goes OK.
- I try to run some scripts and nothing is working as it should.
- Term::ReadKey seems to be a part of this package, but that ain’t working as it expected either (does not read key press)
- Even reading arrays doesn’t seem to be happening for simple scalar assignments??
I installed as “Administrator”.
I checked/changed permissions on any/all folders that PERL resides in, uses, or writes to.
I know that at some point I’ll have to try to find the time to sit down and look at this thing, but for now any suggestions are appreciated.
MISC. NOTE: I’ve got a good number of scripts that are in the 600-line to 1000-lines of code range. So, line-by-line deconstructing this thing would be a monster (nightmare) task.
