I am working on a project on Windows XP 32 bit using ActiveState Perl 5.12. The project involves converting PDF files to text using an external application that doesn't have a command line variant. For this reason, I am using Win32::GuiTest
The code screams along until it has converted 64 PDFs then fails. It fails rather silently (just doesn't open the application). It took me quite a while to discover that it was failing after the same number of PDFs each time but once I did, I began to wonder - why the limit? I am closing the 3rd party conversion application using alt+f4 if that matters.
I intend to work around the limit by not closing the application. I didn't do this originally because the application provides no menu or short cut keys and needs to be automated by moving the mouse (absolute pixel positions). I was just wondering - is this limit documented somewhere? Also, is there a way to work around it?
