Thanks for this one. It's been three years since your posts, but the bug hasn't been fixed. I just came up against it on a Win7 system with ActivePerl 5.10.0.
GetOpenFile works fine for me, so I'll just use that. Here's the documentation on getOpenFile. It comes with Tk, no install needed.

[moritz]: ovedpo15 "use lib" is only for .pm files
[moritz]: if you don't have .pm file, you might to use "require" or "do" with an absolute path
[ovedpo15]: I need to use FindBin thought. does FindBin finds only modules? or it can find perl script also?
[moritz]: maybe you should start looking at the documentation of FindBin?
