Hi, I needed to perform many workaround to get this to build. Please see the procudure below that shows the workarounds in place. 1) Run "ppm install MinGW" 2) Download the PAR-Packer tar.gz file from CPAN 3) Extract the tar.gz file into C:\Perl directory 4) Open up a DOS box and cd into the c:\Perl\PAR-Packer-xxxx directory 5) Set the PATH env variable within the current DOS box, so that it does not have cygwin in the path 6) Enter "Makefile.PL", it should result in the following: C:\Perl\PAR-Packer-1.002>Makefile.PL Set up gcc environment - 3.4.5 (mingw-vista special r3) Checking if your kit is complete... Looks good Writing Makefile for the par.exe program Writing Makefile for PAR::Packer 7) dmake test 8) as the above returns an error: cd myldr C:\Perl\site\bin\g++.exe main.o my_par_pl.o -L"C:\Perl\lib\CORE" C:\Perl\lib\CORE\perl510.lib -o par.exe cd .. dmake test 9) as the above returns an error: cd myldr C:\Perl\site\bin\g++.exe static.o -L"C:\Perl\lib\CORE" C:\Perl\lib\CORE\perl510.lib -o static.exe cd .. dmake test 10) as the above returns loads of errors dmake install dmake test 11) as the above hangs <CTRL><C> dmake test 12) dmake test (failed at t/20-pp.t test 31) dmake install For more detail on each of the workarounds that I had to use, please see discusison threadwhich shows all the errors that were appearing on the screen and the suggestions I have been given. Thank you. Richard.
