Got a new job (yea!), got a new laptop (Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1). Want to install Perl to show the team I'm now on some ideas on automation. So far, so good. Go to the ActiveState site and pull the latest Perl, 126.96.36.1992, and install with no problems. Go to fire up PPM and it crashes.
Faulting application name: perl.exe, version: 188.8.131.522, time stamp:
Faulting module name: ole32.dll, version: 6.1.7601.17514, time stamp:
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Rolled back to 184.108.40.2065, no joy. Rolled back to 220.127.116.114 (which is running fine on my Win 7 Pro x64 SP1 Desktop) with no joy. ole32.dll files are the same version between laptop and desktop. Googled with no joy.
ppm-shell seems to work fine, I updated all standard packages, nothing changed.
It's obviously something on my laptop, but I don't know what because everything else works as expected (it is Windows, after all - sorry, couldn't resist). Any ideas where to go next to troubleshoot this? I've never seen anything like this before.
Many thanks in advance for all help.
