levW has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

.exe created by a "pp" sticks on startup

I was using "pp" packer for creating .exe executables for Windows for last 12 years.

Recently, seems like with latest Windows 10/2016 , have cases when my executables would stuck on startup, no message is provided...CPU shows 8%...

The way out is always to delete the last folder in the "%temp%\par-UserName" folder , which my perl executables naturally create..

Need some advice.thanks

    Could be a change in OS behaviour in general, if your code and packaging method is unchanged. Have you tried using sysinternals tools to find out what's going on?

      Thanks, will give it a try.

      sure enough, I have started with Event logs - there was nothing there ...

        Sorry I misread the question, thought the processes are aborted. If it is "running"(crawling), maybe an Antivirus could be holding it up?

    The latest version of Win10 is:
    Windows 10 Threshold, Redstone, YYHx 18362 1903 (May 2019 Update)
    Windows 10/2016 is a few years out of date.

      meant actually "Windows 10/Windows 2016 (Server)"...
