Hi Edward

MSVCRT.dll is part of the Microsoft Visual C Run-time library https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Windows_library_files#Msvcrt.dll_and_Msvcpp.dll so my guess is that this file could be corrupted or an incompatible version.

I'm not an expert when it comes to Microsoft dlls so I can only tell you what I would do if I was trying to fix this. 

I would take the following steps  to see if any of them fixed the problem:

1) Look in Event Viewer to see if there is any more information - look for disk errors or memory errors
2) Uninstall & reinstall Perl
3) Boot into Safe mode and run a full antivirus scan
4) Run sfc /scanow (https://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/system_file_checker.mspx?mfr=true)
5) Uninstall any Microsoft Visual C++ redistributables then run Windows update to get the latest versions

Someone else may know more about the specific error.  Hope this is helpful and you get it sorted.

Regards

Richard

Hello All,
 
For some reason I can't find any search field to search through the prior postings...
 
I'm trying the "hello world" from the Tutorial (http://perl-win32-gui.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/docs.cgi?doc=tutorial-part1) - exactly as written.
 
What happens is once I run the program from the command line,
Windows 7 spits up a window with the following message
"Perl Command Line Interpreter has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."
 
had a look at the windows event viewer and didn't find anything enlightening:

Faulting application name: perl.exe, version: 5.16.1.1601, time stamp: 0x504031e8

Faulting module name: MSVCRT.dll, version: 7.0.7601.17744, time stamp: 0x4eeaf722

Exception code: 0xc0000005

 

Google didn't help much.

Would appreciate any help.

Regards,

Edward
