I recently downloaded PAR::Packer on Windows 7 to create .exe's from perl code. It works fine with command line perl but when I attempt to use it with gui code it does nothing. The command does not return and error, it just does not bring up the gui box like it does when I run it straight from perl.

Here is a small test case I am using.

use strict; use warnings; use File::Spec::Functions; BEGIN { if (exists $ENV{PAR_PROGNAME}) { use Config (); $ENV{PERL_TCL_DL_PATH} = catfile( $ENV{PAR_TEMP}, 'tkkit.' . $Config::Config{dlext}, ); } } use Tkx; Tkx::button(".b", -text => "Hello, world", -command => sub { Tkx::destroy("."); }, ); Tkx::pack(".b"); Tkx::MainLoop()
If I run a text box pops up with a "Hello World" button.
If I run gui1.exe the command completes with no errors but no box pops up.

The command I use to successfully create the .exe is
pp --gui -o gui1.exe

Did I enter the command incorrectly or is there another problem?

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
