in thread Application error (perl.exe) NT

There's this thing called binary compatibility when it comes to perl, because not all perl binaries are created equal, and usually, when switching perl versions, you must recompile modules which have binary extensions.

It's a lot of perlxs/perlhack voodoo.

Basically, what it boils down to is:
you're gonna have to recompile the module if you got the source, or contact your vendor to acquire an upgraded binary version, one compatible with perl 5.6, or just stick to perl 5.000whatever
