we'll need some more information. Consider the following: - What version of Perl are you running? Perl 5.10.0 is incompatible with PAR::Packer. If you're using that, you'll have to upgrade to 5.10.1 or 5.12.X. - Where did you install PAR::Packer from? Your screenshot shows you're using ActivePerl and PPM, but is the copy of PAR::Packer entirely compatible with your build of perl? It's usually a difficult question to answer unless you've compiler PAR::Packer yourself. You can install a C compiler from PPM by installing (I think) the MinGW package. Then simply use the normal CPAN client to install PAR::Packer "cpan PAR::Packer". - Try upgrading PAR and PAR::Packer to the most recent version Cheers, Steffen

Hi Steffen, sorry, didn't write my perl-version. Yes, that is the problem (I have 5.10.0). Thanks for the quick help. Chris Am Donnerstag, den 22.07.2010, 08:23 -0400 schrieb Steffen Mueller via RT: Show quoted text

I suspect it's not PAR::Packer's problem, but what you are trying to pack :) These DLLs in the fruc directory are highly suspicious, e.g. IO.dll - the Perl core also contains a DLL of that name. Please cd somewhere outside this directory and first try a simple "hello world": pp -o hello.exe -e "print qq[hello world\n]" .\hello.exe If this works, try packing fruc.pl from there by using its absolute pathname - at least, it should pack. But it probably wont't work, because the script runs e.g. frucjob.exe and that won't have been packed automatically. But that's not a bug. Cheers, Roderich

Hi Roderich, thanks. Yes that worked. Both hello.exe and fruc.exe (outside of the dir). So perl somehow binds the wrong IO.dll if I'm it is run in this directory? Chris Am Dienstag, den 27.07.2010, 03:41 -0400 schrieb RSCHUPP via RT: Show quoted text

Looks like it. Probably it's not perl itself, but rather parl that gets invoked during packing. parl is actually a special purpose Perl interpreter. Other aggravating factors are probably that (a) the current directory is always in the DLL search path on Windows and (b) you are using Perl 5.10.0 (which breaks PAR::Packer exactly in this area). Cheers, Roderich
