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

Hi all,
I run into a strange error while using the Win32::File::Ver module using the GetFileVersion method.
The perl.exe just crashes when reaching the following line of code:
$hashRef = GetFileVersion($fileName);
I tried to use the ptkdb debug module and step into the method but it crashes even before showing me the method code!
Help me plz :)

      Os - Windows 2003 $fileName - c:\run.dll
      Thx.

        I just ran the latest version from cpan against 2500 files, 1800 of which are executables, and it either report the data or returned undef.

        There must be something strange about that file. Did you compile Win32::File::Ver yourself or get it as a PPM?


        Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

        In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
