par::packer with Tkx and Strawberry perlby periferral (Novice)
|on Aug 11, 2011 at 18:37 UTC||Need Help??|
periferral has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm using Strawberry perl to build a standalone app with Tkx as the front-end.
I'm running the following command on windows pp --gui --icon res\rvbd.ico -o riverbench.exe benchtool.pl
When I was using Tk, everything was fine. With Tkx and the above command, I get the error.
'The program can't start because tcl85.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.'
If I include tcl85.dll, pp -l tcl85.dll --icon res\rvbd.ico -o riverbench.exe benchtool.pl I get the error message
I found this link for a fix with ActiveState Perl
However, with Strawberry perl there is no tkkit.dll while there is a tcl.dll
When I use ActiveState perl and compile with pp, everything works fine. However, even after specifying --gui option, the console window stays.
I'd love to hear if anyone has got this working successfully. Thanks
