Hi The problem occurs using the following versions: * Window 7 32-bit * Perl v 5.16.3 * wxPerl v 0.9921 * wxWidgets v 2.8.12 * Par::Packer v 1.023 The DispHTML.pl works very well on its own. However when I try to build a standalone executable using Par::Packer (DispHTML.bat enclosed), it then crashes. See attached par_packer_prob.jpg screenshot. I also notice the problem is not confined to this module, basically whenever I include "Use Wx::Html" in a module (whether it is used in the module or not), the same problem arises. Is it a bug or do I need to include some other libraries when running Par::Packer? Just in case DispHTML.pl got blocked, here is the code: #!c:/perl/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; package MyApp; use strict; use warnings; use base 'Wx::App'; sub OnInit { my $frame = MyFrame->new; $frame->Show(1); # modeless dialog return 1; } package MyFrame; use strict; use warnings; use Wx qw(:everything); use base 'Wx::Frame'; use Wx::Event qw(EVT_PAINT); use Wx::Html; # Html package not loaded by "use Wxqw(:everything)" # Html pulls in all of the HTML modules sub new { my ($class) = @_; my $self = Wx::Dialog->new( undef, -1, 'CppTrial-pg340.pl', wxDefaultPosition, wxDefaultSize, wxDEFAULT_DIALOG_STYLE | wxRESIZE_BORDER); &myStdDialogs($self); return $self; } sub myStdDialogs { my ( $self ) = @_; my $topSizer = Wx::BoxSizer->new(wxVERTICAL); my $html = Wx::HtmlWindow->new($self, wxID_ANY, wxDefaultPosition, + Wx::Size->new(600,400), wxHW_SCROLLBAR_NEVER); $html->SetBorders(5); $html->LoadPage("pg342.html"); $topSizer->Add($html, 1, wxALL, 10); my $staticLine = Wx::StaticLine->new($self, wxID_ANY); $topSizer->Add($staticLine, 0, wxEXPAND | wxLEFT | wxRIGHT, 10); my $button = Wx::Button->new($self, wxID_OK, "Ok"); $button->SetDefault(); $topSizer->Add($button, 0, wxALL | wxALIGN_RIGHT, 15); $self->SetSizer($topSizer); $topSizer->Fit($self); $self->ShowModal(); # to show a modal dialog } ############################################################################## # Create the application object and pass control to it.

Sorry, there's not much I can do to help you here - wxperl/wxwidgets has always been problematic with PAR::Packer. The problem might be caused by some Wx::* glue DLL [1] that references another Wx::* glue DLL [2]. This gets broken by PAR::Packer as it extracts glue DLLs with mangled names. In that case, sometimes it seems to help to add the referenced glue DLL also as an -l option. You may search the par mailing list (par@perl.org), e.g. via http://www.mail-archive.com/par@perl.org/info.html or on Google Groups, for similar problems. BTW: Show quoted text

These two -l options shouldn't be necessary. Cheers, Roderich [1] The "glue DLLs" are the files Wx\Wx.dll and Wx\Foo\Foo.dll located somewhere below your C:\Perl\site\lib. [2] If you have the objdump program from the Mingw32 toolchain you can check which DLLs foo.dll references with objdump -a -x foo.dll | grep "DLL Name"

Hi Roderich Many thanks for the quick reply. I will have try to search the net and see if I can find any solution. By the way, your comment " These two -l options shouldn't be necessary." Is not true. See the attached screenshot.

That's the version (and platform) of Perl, but not where you got it from - ActiveState, Strawberry, ... Cheers, Roderich

because your wx stuff looks like it's built using the Mingw32 toolchain (ActiveState build their stuff with Microsoft VisualStudio). But this shouldn't be relevant for your problem. It would be interesting to know what "real" name of the DLL that's mentioned in your screenshot (3cbfbb3e.dll) is - PAR::Packer extracts (glue) DLLs from the packed executable not with their original names, but with a mangled one (IIRC the CRC32 checksum of the file). Try to find this DLL on your disk, it should be located below a directory named par-XXXXXXX in the "temp" directory of your Windows environment (e.g check environment variables TEMP or TMP). Then run objdump -ax your.dll | grep Name (or Windows equivalent of grep) Should print something like: Table Stamp Chain Name Thunk DLL Name: cygwin1.dll <--- vma: Hint/Ord Member-Name Bound-To DLL Name: KERNEL32.dll <--- vma: Hint/Ord Member-Name Bound-To DLL Name: cygperl5_14.dll <--- vma: Hint/Ord Member-Name Bound-To Name 000000000000803c Clone.dll <=== [Name Pointer/Ordinal] Table 00000002 Name Pointer Table 0000000000008030 where <=== marks the "real" name and the <--- mark the DLLs referenced (linked) from this DLL. Cheers, Roderich
