i am sorry if i am wrong about crash. the reason, i said perl crashed was because i got a message window
That is kind of important information to have omitted from your post.
The good news is that I have reproduced your problem and have a solution for you.
The culprit is Win32::OLE. Even this simple threaded code that uses that module in the main thread, fails in exactly the same when when you try to join a thread. Even if that thread makes no use of the module:
So the solution to your immediate problem is to comment out the use Win32::OLE line at the top of your program and replace it with the require and import as shown above in the top of your thread subroutine.
Try that and see how you get on.
