in thread How to install "Perl GUI Loft" on Strawberry Perl?

Since the last release of TGL was about 10 years ago and Win32::GUI has changed since then, it kind of is deprecated in a sense. However, I personally still find it useful.

FWIW, Win32::GUI hasn't changed that much in those four years after the last rease of TheGuiLoft, it just got some bug fixes, and a few new widgets, nothing that would break TheGuiLoft

OTOH, why anyone would choose a non-portable toolkit like Win32::GUI, even if they're stuck on Win32 -- makes no sense to me

    @Anonymous Monk: why anyone would choose a non-portable toolkit like Win32::GUI, even if they're stuck on Win32

    Because Win32::GUI seems to be the best Perl GUI toolkit on Windows - I understand that Perl Tk has issues on Windows, and also it doesn't look neat/cool for users used to Windows.

    All my users are using Windows, and will stay so. Unix/Linux is not an option for them - it's corporate.
