( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Dear esteemed PerlMonks

I am requesting your advice on the following issue*:

I am running (and developing in) Perl on two PC's.

PC "A" configuration: Windows XP SP3, Strawberry perl 5.16, wxPerl/wxWidgets versions: 0.9917 wxWidgets 2.8.12
PC "B" configuration: Windows 7 64 bit, DWIM Perl 5.14.2, wxPerl/wxWidgets versions: 0.9903 wxWidgets 2.8.12

Now what I need to do (following wxPerl: Wx::DatePickerCtrl working, Wx::TimePickerCtrl failing? ) is to upgrade the wxWidgets installations to 2.9.4 (or 2.9.5?). (I understand that "Citrus Perl" is quite convenient for wxWidgets, but I wouldn't want to uninstall/re-install my Perl installations, I've had bad experiences with incomplete/overlapping/incompatible installations in the past).

So my questions are:

a. Can I upgrade wxWidgets from 2.8.12 to 2.9.5 by simply upgrading Alien::wxWidgets?
b. Can Alien::wxWidgets::Utility be used to upgrade wxWidgets from 2.8.12 to 2.9.5?
c. Can the Citrus Perl installation/distribution manager utility, be used with Strawberry Perl/DWIM Perl?

d. If the answers to all of the above are negative, then can you post a detailed prescription of how to build wxWidgets 2.9.5 (cringe) (scary)?

Many TIA - Helen
