in reply to perl 5.16.0 build is failing on windows x64

Interesting ... the OP is using VC10 (presumably an x64 build thereof).
Does anyone here use VC10 to build an x64 perl ?
Does anyone anywhere use *any* version of VC to build an x64 perl ?
ActiveState (still, afaik) don't - they use the Platform SDK compiler, which builds x64 perl-5.16.0 just fine.

Cheers,
Rob

    VS 2008 generates a x64 Perl without any issues for me. VS 2003 also generates a 32 bit Perl without any issues for me. You know that VC 10 is also a synonym for Visual C++ 4.0 ? ;-)

    edit: if you didn't understand the jk, _MSC_VER == 1000 is Visual C 4. So VC 4's official name is "Microsoft (R) 32-bit C/C++ Optimizing Compiler Version 10.00.5270 for 80x86" which abbreviates to "MS C V10" or "MS C 10", which is fudged to "VC 10". Realistically, in 2012, you can bet VC 10 means VC 2010.

    Also AS uses a Platform SDK for x64 that was released between 2003 and 2005. This is because until VS 2005 was released x64 Platform SDK linked with x64 msvcrt.dll not a VS version specific CRT. The C compiler included in the DDK, if used to compile usermode code, will still compile with msvcrt.dll and not a VS specific DLL. AS has a policy for AP to only use msvcrt.dll. Google for more info.

      No - I didn't know that. Actually, I got the "10" from "VStudio10" (on his scratchpad) ... which doesn't really prove anything at all about which version the OP is using.

      Cheers,
      Rob
