s/TopLevel/Toplevel/mg;

"require Tk::TopLevel;" doesn't bomb out because you'd appear to be on a Windows system (file search is case-insensitive). But Tk::TopLevel isn't being found, because it's Tk::Toplevel...

Oh, and it's probably a better idea to "use Tk::Toplevel;".

    I've tried changing the "require" line as you specified but now I get an extra line in the error codes:

    Assuming 'require Tk::TopLevel;' at D:\Work\test2.pl line 21

    And still no window. :(

      You need to also change the line where you create the new top-level window.

      $TestWindow = $main->Toplevel();

      It's not just the require that needs to change... The /m on ariels' substitution indicated that you needed to change TopLevel->Toplevel everywhere...

        I'm a colossal moron. Thanks for you patience. That did the trick. Can't believe I fell for the case-sensitive problem. I'll be more careful next time.

    Damn I hate MixedCaseVariableNames. Because I can't remember them as sounds. Is it topLevel or Toplevel or TopLevel? If I wrote the code, it's "top_level". Period. And what if there's an acronym buried in the variable name? Is it CvsVersion or CVSversion? Or - god help us - CVSVersion? When the revolution comes, the inventors of mixed case variable names will be the first against the wall!
