in thread Missing bufferoverflowU.lib

Looking in the blib, the manifest has been produced

No such file in my blibs. Does that merely indicate that the manifest has been attached to the dll ?

I'm getting the same Makefile as you (which is to be expected, as we're using the same build of perl), but no manifest problems. I'm using Windows Server 2003 R2 SDK, whereas you're using a 2008 SDK - which, no doubt, accounts for the difference (somehow).

As with you, I see no mention of "manifest" during the build process.

Cheers,
Rob

    Rob, I get the distinct impression that 2003 is long enough ago that the whole 'manifest' issue hadn't yet raised its ugly head, and that it has never been retro-fitted into the 2003SDK.

    Part of me wishes it was still possible to download the 2003SDK, but then the issue would have just been deferred until later anyway.
