Hi, PAR::Packer experts Currently, I am working on win2003 x64 with strawberry-perl-5.12.3x64. I have installed PAR-Packer-1.009 with the patch in https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=57273. After the module was installed. I can run the parl.exe correctly. ===================================================== C:\strawberry\perl\site\bin>parl.exe Usage: parl.exe [ -Alib.par ] [ -Idir ] [ -Mmodule ] [ src.par ] [ program.pl ] parl.exe [ -B|-b ] [-Ooutfile] src.par ======================================================= Then I copy the parl.exe to c:\ and install strawberry-perl-5.10.4x86 under c:\strawberry. When I try to run the file c:\parl.exe, I got error ===================================================== C:\>parl.exe Can't load 'C:/strawberry/perl/lib/auto/IO/IO.dll' for module IO: load_file:%1 i s not a valid Win32 application at C:/strawberry/perl/lib/XSLoader.pm line 71. at C:/strawberry/perl/lib/IO.pm line 11 Compilation failed in require at C:/strawberry/perl/lib/IO/Handle.pm line 266.

BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at C:/strawberry/perl/lib/IO/File.pm line 133. Compilation failed in require at -e line 351. ========================================================= The parl.exe try to load some dll from C:/strawberry/perl/lib. But the dll files can't be loaded successful. Then I try to rename c:\strawberry to another name c:\strawberry_old and try to run c:\parl.exe again. This time , the parl.exe can be executed correctly. I restore the c:\strawberry_old to c:\strawberry. Then the issue takes place again. I also tried PAR-Packer-1.009 on strawberryperl-5.10.4x86. The parl.exe can work well no matter what version strawberry perl was installed to c:\strawberry. Could you help to look into this? Any further information needed, let me know Thanks Dengfeng -- --------------------------------------------------------- Market is wrong, But I am right!

Looks like parl.exe (which in theory should be totally self-contained) still looks for modules in C:\strawberry\... (i.e. the configuration from where it was built) in preference to the modules packed into parl.exe. If it finds a module and its DLL in C:\strawberry\... it tries to load that - and that won't work because Perl 5.12 and 5.10 have incompatible ABIs. If there's nothing in C:\strawberry\... it falls back to the built-in modules. This behaviour might be caused by the fact that Strawberry Perl 5.12 contains a new version of XSLoader that breaks PAR::Packer's hack to intercept loading of DLLs. The fix for that is already in PAR::Packer's Subversion repository: http://svn.openfoundry.org/par/PAR-Packer/trunk Could you try that, i.e. - re-install Straberry 5.12.3 - check out the above - apply the patch from RT 57273 as before - build it and save parl.exe While you're at it: regarding that patch from RT 57273: - does "dmake test" pass all tests? - after "dmake install", please try to pack a minimal script pp -o hello.exe -e "print qq[hello world\n]" I'm interested in the output of objdump -h hello.exe in particular if it lists a resource section (".rsrc") (objdump.exe is in C:\strawberry\c\bin). Cheers, Roderich

Good news. This issue has been fixed in http://svn.openfoundry.org/par/PAR-Packer/trunk. When I install this latest version on strawberry-5.12.3x64.the parl.exe can be executed sucessful no mater what perl version was installed in c:\strawberry.

So the cause really was the XSLoader problem, thanks for confirming. Show quoted text

And your packed executables do have a .rsrc sections. Show quoted text

Yeah, must be a separate issue. Some people get this test failure, others don't. I'd say go ahead anyway and file another bug if you encounter a "real" problem. My main concern is that I don't know what test 32 in t/20-pp.t was intended to test :( Anyway, I'll commit the patch from RT 57273 and roll out a release ASAP as the Windows 64 bit build problem is currently the most often reported issue. Cheers, Roderich
Fixed in PAR::Packer 1.010
