in reply to Is there a problem with IPC::Open on Windows 7?

Yes. It is broken on Windows. (If you print out the handles immediately after the open you'll find that $err is never set.)

What to do about it? You could raise an bug report; but it's been broken for a decade or so already at least; it is unlikely to change anytime soon.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
