Hi -- I have been working with PAR on WinXP (home) and encoutnering flaky problems: sometimes pp runs, sometimes it doesn't (same source file, no changes); sometimes the resulting .exe file runs, sometimes it doesn't (no changes to .exe).
When I say "doesn't run", I get no errors, just a quick and silent return to the command prompt. These scripts are verbose and chatter quite a bit -- there is no mode in which they run silently. The scripts are a bit complex: they rely on the environment @INC pointing to the right library dir for the application; they examine their own @INC to determine where they are running, etc. However, I think the problem lies with XP, or the XP--PAR interaction, not with PAR or the script--PAR interaction. Specifically, if I click "properties" on the .exe and set "Win95 Compatibility Mode", the .exe's function normally, repeatedly, consistently. Does anyone have any advice about this?  What is going on here?  If the compatibility mode will truly fix my problem, is there a way to set the flag through perl under winxp? (I have a script that runs PAR on a list of other perl scripts and moves the resulting .exe to the right location on the network. Manually having to click "Win95" mode on each bundled .exe would prohibit me from having my desired automatic automated publish-bundled-binaries.pl script.) Thanks for the advice!
