It's something I wrote myself. I thought I had posted it, along with my Tk::Carp, but apparently I'd forgotten to. I went ahead and posted it now. You can find it at Win32::GUI::Carp. I need to get both of these on CPAN, but I never got around to it.

    I can't get it to work. I downloaded Win32::GUI from PPM, downloaded and installed carp. I created an icon for my program, and created an INI with but two entries, one for the program, and one for the Icon. When I run Traymon, it starts the target program and then dies with the "Please tell Microsoft about this problem" dialog. I thought perhaps my Icon was causing the problem, so I commented out the Set_Icon call as a test. Same result. Any clues for the clueless? Thanks

      I had the same problem as well - here's how to fix:

      Change the line reading (in sub start_gui):

      $win  = Win32::GUI::Window->new();

      to this:

      $win  = Win32::GUI::Window->new(-name=>'Main',-text=>'Perl');

      Basically, it seems that Win32::GUI::Window::new needs the name and text args, otherwise it crashes.

      Cheers! -josiah
