  • Hi!
    I don't know if you are interested in non-MSVC reports, but this is the test result on Windows Vista, 32bit, with latest Strawberry Perl (mingw/gcc).

    Couldn't seem to install CPAN::Reporter, because IO::CaptureOutput is a dependency...

    Didn't dig into the test failure.
    If you want me to do that, or test something else, just ask.


    Checking if your kit is complete...
    Looks good
    Writing Makefile for IO::CaptureOutput
    cp lib/IO/ blib\lib\IO\

    • That's odd. It works for me on Win XP with Strawberry Perl. Maybe it's a Vista thing. Have you customized anything about your installation? (E.g. moved MinGW, not that I think that should matter.)

      Could you please send me the output of "perl -V"? (If you don't mind, please email it to dagolden at, so I can followup more conveniently).

      Thanks in advance,

    • Has Strawberry Perl been upgraded to use a newer gcc package that supports Vista?
      The last time I checked (2-3 months ago), gcc didn't work on Vista at all, and I couldn't install any perl XS modules.
      I've found something in the mingw mailing lists about a "gcc-vista", but it's not listed on the SF download page.
      (Sorry I can't be more helpful, I don't currently have a Vista box set up).
      • The latest strawberry works and compiles just fine. Installed Inline::C without problems. I had just to add manually the "libexec/blabla/blabla/" path...
        • That's good to know, thanks.
          The lack of a working perl was the last issue stopping me replacing my severely outdated home G4 with a vista box.
          (I don't think linux will ever be family friendly enough)
