I suppose than the issue is related to BUG:14584 If you include Win32::OLE and you use Threads or Fork (like Parrallel::Forkmanager) in your program, I get a message popup "The memory could not be written" and perl crashes. Using debugger on perl.exe, the issue occurs at line 210 of vmem.h : *nowhere=0; This is a Perl program to reproduce the issue, if you uncomment the use Win32::OLE the popup is displayed and perl.exe crashes. use Parallel::ForkManager; use Data::Dumper; $Data::Dumper::Terse = 1; $Data::Dumper::Indent = 1; use vars qw(@ISA $VERSION $DEBUG @EXPORT ); #Please uncomment these two following line to get the issue. #use Win32::OLE qw( in ); #use Win32::OLE::Variant; BEGIN { } @links=( [1,1], ); # Max 30 processes for parallel download my $pm = new Parallel::ForkManager(30); foreach my $linkarray (@links) { $pm->start and next; # do the fork print "$linkarray\n"; sleep 2; $pm->finish; # do the exit in the child process } $pm->wait_all_children; exit(0);
