  • Looks like I fixed the problem by de-installing a previous version of Strawberry Perl. I thought my previous version was so old it wouldn't even appear in add/remove programs.

    • That would do it.

      Here's my bet as to why: The 5.12.0 versions run a perl script to do their relocation - when the script fails for some reason, it rolls back - and since it is a script, the only way to tell which file caused the problem is by reading the logs that normally do not get created, but can be asked for. This is something that was improved in the current betas, (we now run a DLL instead of a Perl script, so we can get back more information - running a script only gives us a "successful or not, and if not, log the output of the script" ) but still needs further improvement.

      The new Strawberry Perl for Windows has been released! Check http://strawberryperl.com for it.
      • Thanks for the clarification, Diamond. I appreciate the stellar product you guys are putting out and the fact that you're telling me this was fixed even before I mentioned it. You guys must be psychic. :)

        I may even be daring enough to run the betas; I'll have to see. :)
