I apoligise if this message doesn't get posted to the par mailing list correctly - I'm trying here... I, too, had problems with parl.exe not spawning. I am running Windows XP Pro (WinXP WinXPPro), and I have MSVC++ installed. I am using ActiveState's perl. Whenever I tried to generate things with pp, I would get this error (Can't spawn parl.exe: No error at c:\Perl\bin\pp line 372), and a nice little MS window would pop up asking me if I wanted to debug, etc. Even better, if I ran parl.exe, it would immediately crash, giving me the same window, but no error message. Finally, I used ppm to install par, and -lo and behold!-, it seems to be working. I guess it couldn't find Par.pm and was dying. Hope my experience helps!! Peter __ Do you Yahoo!?

In case it helps, it looks like parl.exe runs consistently for me on WinXPPro. I don't have your program to try, but running pp on simple scripts and executing them also appears to work correctly. Setup: OS: WinXPPro Perl: Activestate 5.8.0 Built 00:45:44 Mar 31, 2003 PAR: 0.75 (from binary) If there is anything I can help test for this, please let me know.

Any ideas? More info: parl.exe launches reliably on Win2KPro. Spoke too soon. Every once in a while I get the same failure when running pp on Win2KPro. I also get silent, quick exits occasionally when running the generated executable, unfortunately. I'm running both Win2K and WinXP under VMWare, but all other executables seem to load well and run (we run some pretty serious C++ compiles on win2k, for instance). - Barrie
