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. :-/ > Is there a workaround such that the bundles will run w/o setting this > flag?

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. (Cc'ed to the list, as this is becoming the #1 FAQ/Blocker bug now...) Thanks, /Autrijus/
