Hi,
 
    It's look like a problem for find default libc function.
    It's strange.
 
    Theoricly, ActivePerl use Visual C++ 6 msvcrt.lib. Are you using ActivePerl distribution with visual C++ 6 ?
 
    Look in your makefile, and search for LIBC entry, you must have : LIBC = msvcrt.lib
    If OK, check if you have this library in your Visual C++ lib directory.
 
    If LIBC is empty, change it and run nmake again.
    If it's work, you probably have a problem with your perl\lib\config.pm file.
    Edit it and change libc entry with libc='msvcrt.lib'.
    Rerun perl makefile.pl and LIBC entry should be correct.
 
Laurent.

Subject: [perl-win32-gui-users] problems with running the Makefile

Hi, I’m trying to install Win32-GUI but I failed.  In the command line, I first typed in “perl Makefile.PL” and it created a Makefile.  I then typed “nmake” as I am using Visual C++, but then I got a lot of error messages as follows:

 

NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'link' : return code '0x460'

Stop.

 

What’s the problem?
