How to properly add a perl distrib under ClearCase control

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

Sorry for such a borderline question about perl, but scripting is not always dirty programming ;-) As I start a ClearCase support job on a Windows (not my choice) environment, I will probably have to manage perl script. And I want also o manage the perl distrib, to have an up to date one (not the "old" 5.6.1 delivered with CCase), and to manage the possibly future added modules. No problem to install a perl distrib on windows, even in a view as a private directory tree. It works well. But when adding the perl directory tree to source control (via a CCase related tool), I can no more run the perl interpreter. It fails with a "Cannot Initialize Application properly (Oxc0000022). The perl directory is named "perl" as during the install, and has the same root. Moreover, I have checked that the executable bit on the .exe and also .bat files is on. Have a look at the desc of the perl.exe :
ct desc -l perl.exe rsion "perl.exe@@\main\1" created 19-juin-05.03:44:22 by pinardon.Utilisa. du domaine@MYMACHINE "created by clearfsimport" Element Protection: User : NET\pinardon : r-x Group: NET\Utilisa. du domaine : r-x Other: : r-x element type: compressed_file predecessor version: \main\0
So, if anyone could have an idea, it will help me greatly. Thanks a lot and have a nice day or evening, depending on where you are on the planet ;) J.L.

    I'd suspect a few things: (1) perhaps the tree didn't get fully loaded successfully; (2) maybe you're still having PATH issues.

    Here's what I would try: make a snapshot (static) view that pulls the distrib; and run it in that view. Since those will be plain, "local" files, that will at least eliminate any problems that might be caused by the networkiness of the ClearCase dynamic view.

    We're building the house of the future together.

    What does the log say (Control Panel => ? => Event Viewer)?

    You should try your luck at some kind of windows (or clearcase) support forum.

    I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).
