Oh. Yes, the prebuilt pardists are indeed compiled with VC++ 6.0 on win2k. I wonder if it'd be better if I change the build platform to WinXP.
Dunno; I'm getting failures on Win2K as well, so who knows?
I haven't dug in to see what can generate a "Failed to spawn" message with no error. perl.exe must be generating that message, but how can it tell that the spawn failed?
The fact that parl.exe and vcp.exe both exhibit this behavior from the command line makes me suspect some kind of very primitive startup issue in the basic .exe. How do those .exes differ from normal C++ .exes?
Do you have access to a VC++ there?
Not yet, but I can see it in my future. We use Borland tools as much as possible, but I have a client that may want us to port a messaging library to build under both Borland and VC++, not sure.
Maybe it's time to seriously investigate switching to MinGW as the default compiler...
