GD::Barcode::QRcode and perl2exe

Dr. Mu has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm having issues with a program that uses GD::Barcode::QRcode when it's packaged with perl2exe. Here's a minimal program that illustrates the problem:
use strict; use GD::Barcode::QRcode; use GD; my $qr = GD::Barcode::QRcode->new("testing 123", {Ecc => 'M', Version +=> 5, ModuleSize => 6}); open JPG, ">qrcode.jpg"; binmode JPG; print JPG $qr->plot()->jpeg(100); close JPG
When interpreted, it generates the correct QR code block. When run from a perl2exe-generated .exe, it generates a correctly-sized and -formatted block, but with none of the data bits.

Using Perl2Exe V8.40 with Perl 5.8.4 (ActivePerl build 810) under Win XP.

Any ideas?

    you probably forgot to pack the files perl2exe didn't know to pack , standard faq item for all packers par/pp,perlapp,cavapack ... only fatpacker uses .packlist without trying to be clever (remove unused files)

    OTOH, the version you listed is quite ancient

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
