This is known.  I don't have a copy of WinXP, nor a copy of VS.Net,
so I'm somewhat powerless in helping debugging this.

I suspect if you compile PAR itself using VS.Net, it may be able
to run without setting compatbiilty.  Alternatively, maybe something
in static.c is no longer supported by newer libraries.

I may receive a machine with WinXP/VS.Net next Tuesday to play with,
but that's not guaranteed. :-/

Yeah.  If somebody with Win32 programming ability can help (by setting
$DEBUG to 1 in myldr/Makefile.PL and reinstall after nmake clean) to
trace this down, it'd be appreciated.
