MExtUtuils result in error while trying to install modules.

abt has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

While trying to install modules on a win7 64 system the problem is tha multiple modules do not want to install. This is regardless the distibution and even regardless the verion ( 5.14/ 5.16 both 32bits and 64 bits.) Installing using cpan results in an error message:

oad blib\script\wxperl_overload pl2bat.bat blib\script\wxperl_overload MDOOTSON/Wx-0.9916.tar.gz C:\strawberry\c\bin\dmake.exe -- OK Running make test C:\strawberry\perl\bin\perl.exe "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e" "test_h +arness(0, 'blib\lib', 'blib\arch')" t/*.t t/01_load.t ........... Dubious, test returned 38 (wstat 9728, 0x2600) +.

This is followed by a popup error message telling: "Perl.exe stopped working" For some modules I managed to istall them manually, but this still results in the script not working and running the script results in the same popup error. "Perl.exe stopped working..." This only happens on a win7 64 system and does not depend on the distribution. The Wx module ( included in DMWIN perl) works okay in there, but I have the same issue with other modules even with this distribution. Anybody knows what the h.. can be wrong?

    :) You're not providing actionable details, but, its probably dll hell of some sort

    You can alway try rebooting :)

      rebooting didnt help. ;) what additional information do you like? tried installing manually, via cpan, ppm.

        any kind of information , but details, not summaries

        anything that would help someone reproduce the problem

        for example, figure out which test causes perl.exe stopped working,
        what modules and dlls it loads Devel::VersionDump, %::
        figure out which line in the test causes it (Devel::Trace),
        attach a debugger figure out which dll's are loaded at the time,
        figure a way to get more error data from windows that the generic message -- eventvwr? windbg? depends? something something
        don't forget to rule out resource limits if you know how, and ... stuff like that

        Try running perl -Mblib t/01_load.t
        That should cause the same crash - but, if you're lucky, you might also get a meaningful error message.

        Cheers,
        Rob
        :) sorry, that is of no use
