in reply to pp with gui

Did I enter the command incorrectly or is there another problem?

Well, if you're adding PERL_TCL_DL_PATH as shown in you're missing the pp -l option

    I tried adding -l, same result.

      sure sure, in any case, try the other tips i linked, turn on debugging ...

        I finally got some time to play with this, unfortunately no luck yet.
        Here is my updated code.

        use strict;
        use warnings;
        use File::Spec::Functions;

        BEGIN {
        if (exists $ENV{PAR_PROGNAME}) {
        use Config ();
        $ENV{PERL_TCL_DL_PATH} = catfile(
        'tkkit.' . $Config::Config{dlext},
        use Tkx;

        -text => "Hello, world",
        -command => sub { Tkx::destroy("."); },


        Here is the command I run to create the .exe.

        pp --gui -o gui2.exe -l C:/Perl/lib/auto/Tcl/tkki. dll -l C:/Perl/lib/auto/Tcl/Tcl.dll

        The issue is still exactly the same. If I run the program as a perl program it works fine.
        If I run it as an .exe nothing happens.

        Any additional ideas would be appreciated.

        Oh, if I add -x it pops up the "hello" box during the compile. I click on the box and it continues the compile. The resulting .exe does nothing.
