in thread Failure to start 2nd Perl application

It is the 2nd process

I have run the same script on several other PC configurations and Windows operating systems without any similar difficulties.

The 2nd failing script is a GUI application which uses facilities such as reading Excel files and building the GUI using Perl Tk

I believe that most other PCs have more than 2 GB memory? Could the memory size be a problem?

    Can you run the second script to process the same data on other systems successfully? If you can, what is the maximum memory utilization on a system where it works?

    Is your Windows XP system 32bit or 64bit?

    If Windows XP is 64bit, is perl 32bit or 64bit?

    If Windows XP is 32bit or perl is 32bit then process virtual memory is limited to 2GB. If this is the case, given the data you are processing, is it reasonable that perl requires more than 2GB memory space?

    Are you running the same version of perl and all relevant modules on the Windows XP system as you are on the systems that are working?

      Many thanks for your continued help. I am getting answers to as many of your questions as I can. I will pass them on as soon as I have them.
