in thread Win32::GUI on 64bit Windows?

You can not install Win32 modules in x64 bit perl.

I beg to differ on that. It's been a while, but I seem to recall being able to install Win32 modules in 64-bit Perl before without any issues.

Ok, so maybe you don't want to take my word for it. Here's some links to release notes of 64-bit Strawberry Perl that includes various Win32 modules in the list of included modules.

If I remember correctly, ActiveState's releases of 64-bit version of their ActivePerl do not include Win32 modules. However, that does not mean that Win32 modules cannot be installed in 64-bit Perl.

    Hi dasgar

    Thanks for the information. I use only Active Perl in Windows. I was thinking Win32 modules are not supported in x64 perl.

    Thanks & Regards,

      You'll need to build Win32::GUI yourself for a 64 bit machine. But it's simple enough if you are using the late version of Activestate's perl.

      ppm install mingw

      Will install the 64 bit compiler suite, then download the latest sourcecode for Win32::GUI, NOT from cpan, but from:

      It contains the various patches needed for 64 bit.

      Follow the instructions on building (it's simple enough)
