Couldn't package Wx application: Others have pointed out that the external wxWidgets libraries need manual treatment. This isn't really a flaw in PAR (or other packagers). The only way to find out about what shared libraries would be needed by an XS module would be to ask the run-time linker. But that would be so utterly platform dependent and probably prone to breakage that nobody has bothered to attempt it.

It is a pita, but I doubt its too fragile (its how I do it). One way is with ldd, another is with sysinternals listdlls.

Better yet is gcc/mingw objdump , ex

$ objdump -p C:\strawberry\perl\site\lib\auto\Wx\Wx.dll |grep "DLL Na +me" DLL Name: KERNEL32.dll DLL Name: msvcrt.dll DLL Name: msvcrt.dll DLL Name: perl510.dll DLL Name: wxbase28_gcc_custom.dll DLL Name: wxmsw28_adv_gcc_custom.dll DLL Name: wxmsw28_core_gcc_custom.dll
or microsofts dumpbin /IMPORTS:msvcrt.dll

or depends.exe /c /f:1 /ot:temp.txt msvcrt.dll

Once you get a list , add each dll with pp -l option
