  • That's what it was! And I thought how came I buy a new laptop with Vista, immediately upgrade to SP1, read a lot about msvcrt.dll upgrade and how it breaks access(), swear at Microsoft in preparation to use a recompiled gcc, when I suddenly I discover that I don't have this bug.

    To be honest, I thought it could be some difference between English and Russian SKU, a thought that SP1 fixes something like that didn't even cross my mind. :)
  • on irc this evening (claco).

    I've got Vista SP1 running under Parallels. I'll give SP a whirl. Any particular module to try and compile, or just any old xs module will do?
  • It's been a while since I've booted my laptop into Vista but I'll give a shot.
    • I tried installing a few XS modules last night and it was hit and miss. I'm hopeful that once I go through the tweaks that made it sort of work pre-SP1 that it will be good to go.
  • Not that I care much about this Microsoft stuff -- as far as you know -- but I saw this new video on teh YouTube called Strawberry Perl [youtube.com] that I figured maybe you haven't seen. So there it is!
  • I have Vista SP1 on Parallels. It's an as yet unmolested install. In fact, SP is the first thing to be installed right after Firefox. :-)

    Data::UUID, which builds fine on XP, failed in Vista with a bung of unicode/character errors.

    However, DBI built and tested in the first shot. So depending on what the Vista issue really is, it appears to work on SP1.

    Then I want back to Data::UUID. Sometimes it builds. Sometimes it doesn't. Damn inconsistant.

    C:\strawberry\cpan\build\Data-UUID-1.148-nc9CkU>dmake
    gcc -c
