|go ahead... be a heretic|
Thank you, James and AM.
Now James: studying your link, the solution over there instructs one to make sure that setup.h from wxWidgets-2.9.4_Headers exists in
WxWidgets\include\msvc\wx.In my case, setup.h is there, so this apparently is not the problem.
AM: studying the bug reports you quote, they discuss mingw32-make.exe. My DWIM Perl installation (v 5.14.2) does not contain mingw32-make.exe. And indeed the error messages do not mention mingw32-make.exe. Instead, the relevant error messages are, in my opinion:
So it seems that it's looking for the files: gcc_mswudll and gcc_dll (or gcc_mswu.dll and gcc.dll?), which don't exist at my installation.
Now I happened to hit this on the NET:
22.214.171.124 (November 2011) as included with DWIM Perl contains a gcc tool chain that is not compatible with Wx / wxWidgets 2.9.x buildsSo is the situation calling for an update to the Perl version? (to Strawberry Perl 5.16.x)?
Many thanks for your dedication; and TIA - Helen
