Perl SDK on Windows 32-bit Fails

I have a custom probe that runs across multiple OS's and variants, but Windows 32-bit is giving trouble.

I am using Strawberryperl Portable for maximum not-breaking-other-things.


However, whenever the script tries to use one of the SDK modules, Perl dies. (silently).

Trying to run in debug shows a SEGV (see below for the exact message)


I only see this fault on Windows 32 bit, not x64.

I have tried Perl 5.14.2, 5.14.3 and 5.14.4

Each with SDK_Perl 5.06 and 5.10, and always with the same failure.


I can't use a non-portable, so ActivePerl is out.


Any help?


Details of fault:


Microsoft Windows [Version 5.2.3790]
