Re: Compile PERL from source on Windowsby syphilis (Chancellor)

At what stage of 'nmake test' does the error occur ?
I've just tried out 5.16.2, using MSVC++ 7.1 and couldn't reproduce the error - though the test suite hangs for me at:
I build perl from source quite a bit, and the 32-bit builds usually hang at some point during the running of the tests. (This has been going on for so long that I don't care any more - I just install and be done with it.)
From where did you obtain the perl-5.16.2 source ?
In the Makefile, you are expected to specify whether you're using the free version or the full version of 2010. Did you get that part right ? (Even if you didn't, it seems unlikely to me that would cause the error you're seeing.)
Can you google up any fail reports that are similar to yours ?
