in thread Moving Perl from test to Dev

Hmmm....I have never hit any problems in this regard. My understanding is that DLLs will never need to be "registered" unless they do OLE-ish kinds of things. My guess is that I have never needed to use any OLE-ish perl DLLs on Win32. I copy perl installations around to different Win32 hosts quite frequently and run reloc_perl and its been all smooth sailing. Are you just guessing that various modules will fail or can you cite examples? I would be interested to know what you have found necessary to avoid.

    A good point you have here.

    As long as all the DLL's are in the perl-tree and are "dynaloaded" it will work, but I can imagine that some modules might put the DLL's elsewhere and then simply copying the perl-tree will not work.

    I was thinking of things like expat or sablotron which use their own dll's in their own folders and with which I had no end of trouble getting them to run after I upgraded my perl-installation.
