in thread cpan dies for bad dlltool & dmake.exe

My guess is that OP is using ActiveState Perl and MinGW as indicated by the "Set up gcc environment - 3.4.5 (mingw-vista special r3)" line I see in the CPAN build output. I used to get that line with Active / MinGW.

I've moved to Strawberry as the MinGw compiler (and associated tools like 'dlltool') are bundled with the distribution making life much easier.

VinsWorldcom@C:\Users\VinsWorldcom> which dlltool C:\strawberry\c\bin\dlltool.exe

[Corion]: marto: Redoing something on new infrastructure sounds fun. At least you can reuse your previous experience :)
[marto]: I'm looking forwads to it. The video sources are dying, and they don't have the hardware to play them back (old tape formats, not just VHS + Laserdisc etc)
[marto]: I'll be interested to see what difference in terms of file size/quality the new codecs make. I enjoy working on things like this, so that's a bonus
[Corion]: Ah, cool! So it's not an inhouse youtube but for a wider consumption
[marto]: last time it was IE6 clients, now they're on 11, so more scope there also, in terms of UI and playback
[marto]: in house as in Company network, not internet connected (power stations and the corporate HQs)
