  • Since .dll files need to be in the PATH somewhere, that leaves perl/bin as the location that shared libraries need to exist for Perl modules to find them.

    Actually, it's enough if the .dll file resides in the same directory as the executable. That's also the preferred location if you distribute application specific .dlls and the first location Windows looks for .dlls to be loaded. Also, that's the same location the perl58.dll lives. $ENV{PATH} comes into play later.

    • Thanks for the tip.

      At least that leaves the option open to remove PATH from the environment in some cases.
