#610 Debugger does not work on Windows 7 64 bit

Debugger (177)

Use of uninitialized value in subroutine dereference at (null) line 1.
perl5db.pl did not return a true value.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.

The workaround from EPIC FAQ (i.e. editing Cwd.pm) does NOT help!
Config: Active Perl 5.12 64bit / Eclipse 3.6.1 / EPIC 0.6.38 / Windows 7 64bit

    Followup from original submitter:
    This is only an issue with a 64bit Perl. Installing Active Perl 5.12 x86, pointing EPIC to the new Perl location, installing PadWalker, and applying the Cwd.pm patch worked around it - obviously only for applications that can live within a 32 bit address space.

    I've had the same problem on x64 5.12 and x64 5.10. Added to lib search path C:/Perl64/lib and this solved the problem. Obviously adjust for your local installation directory. See http://www.perlmonks.org/index.pl?node_id=829293 for additional information
