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

I want to convert my perl script to an executable to run on Windows. In the past I have used perl2exe, but now I cannot get this option to work so I'm trying PAR::Packer.

However, I cannot get this to install. When I run cpan>install PAR::Packer I get the following. (I omitted all of the stuff that seemed to work) Last night I searched the web for hours and haven't found the answer.

C:\Perl64\site\bin\gcc.exe -c -DNDEBUG -DWIN32 -D_CONSOLE -DNO_STRICT +-DWIN64 -D CONSERVATIVE -DPERL_TEXTMODE_SCRIPTS -DUSE_SITECUSTOMIZE -DPERL_IMPLIC +IT_CONTEXT -DPERL_IMPLICIT_SYS -DUSE_PERLIO -DHASATTRIBUTE -fno-strict-aliasing +-mms-bitfi elds -I"C:\Perl64\lib\CORE" -DPARL_EXE=\"parl.exe\" -O2 main.c windres -F pei-i386 -i winres\pp.rc -o winres\pp.res windres -o ppresource.coff winres\pp.res C:\Perl64\site\lib\auto\MinGW\bin\windres.exe: unexpected version stri +ng length 68 != 32 + 8 dmake.exe: Error code 129, while making 'ppresource.coff' dmake.exe: Error code 255, while making 'subdirs' RSCHUPP/PAR-Packer-1.013.tar.gz C:\Perl64\site\bin\dmake.exe -- NOT OK Running make test Can't test without successful make Running make install Make had returned bad status, install seems impossible Failed during this command: RSCHUPP/PAR-Packer-1.013.tar.gz : make NO

    Which Perl distribution are you using? Based on the folder name "Perl64", I'm assuming that you're using a 64-bit Perl, is that correct?

    Unless you need the 64-bit features (64 bit integers, etc.), you can use 32-bit Perl just fine on 64-bit Windows. If you're willing to go with 32-bit Perl, you check out the information that I shared at Re: Need help using CPan's pp - PAR Packager. So far, I personally haven't had problems installing PAR::Packer on 32-bit versions ActiveState Perl and Strawberry Perl.

      Thanks guys! I will try the 32-bit perl. Which version of Perl are you using?

        Unfortunately, I haven't been consistent on which version and distribution that I have been using. Between my personal system and systems at work, I've used ActiveState's ActivePerl, Strawberry Perl, and DWIM Perl. I've primarily been using versions 5.12 and up.
