in thread ActivePerl - perl.exe works, wperl.exe does not...

This works...

Given that I can run perl.exe with no child window, I can scrap wperl.exe... ;)

Clearly there's some other difference between the two binaries - I have other wperl scripts that run fine, it was just theNet::SFTP::Foreign line:

my $sftp = Net::SFTP::Foreign->new( $host, user => $user, password => $password, ssh_cmd => 'plink' );

that wperl choked on that perl.exe handled without a problem...

Thanks much for your help! Scott...

    The difference is STDIN/STDOUT/STDERR/

    wperl.exe, being a windows GUI application, doesn't have these

    perl.exe, being a windows console (cmd.exe) application, does have these, but it also has a console window

    So you start wperl because it has no console window, make sure the children get hidden, then launch a hidden perl.exe , because it has a console and STDIN/STDOUT/STDERR

    Apparently Net::SFTP ... needs a STDIN/STDOUT/STDERR for pipes and such

      Lovely, thank You..:-)
