I get the same result when packing a single or multiple scripts.

Using set PAR_DEBUG=999 or say $ENV{PAR_*} (good advice, by the way) doesn't change the output.

About your technique of packing child/parent scripts as .exe, doesn't it also duplicate the perl interpreter? The executable's size with a single empty script is already about 8MB, I'm afraid it would result in a huge file.

    It looks like the system does not get so far as to be able to run any code, as pointed to in the code link in 11134827.

    In terms of packing exes in exes, their contents are independent so the perl interpreter will be duplicated. Whether one considers 8MB (or 64MB) huge is a matter of context, e.g. whether the target systems are resource constrained or not.
