Special registry operation


R

Roland Mösl

I have a problem with Perl.

The new version has a bug at the GUI update.
The bug is confirmed August 2010,
but until now no bug fix.

So I have to continue with an old perl version.

The main problem is,
the installer of the old perl version is
16 bit software.

I installed it on my new Windows 7/64 Bit notebook
by Laplink PC-mover.

But this solution is not useable for all
my clients migrating to 64 Bit systems.

So I think about the following strategy:

A software to compare the registry
Install old Perl on a windows XP
Run again the software to compare registry

And now:

How to bring this changes in registry
to an other computer with windows 7?

Laplink PC mover made this operation,
but I can not tell all users migrating
to buy a 30,-EUR license for this task.

Are there maybe freeware migration tools
dealing with this typical I have to
migrate to 64 bit, but the installer of
some of my software is 16 bit?

In your above description, what are the brand names
and version numbers of the software being used ?

If it is ActivePERL from ActiveState, have you had
a look at the structure of the ZIP version of installer ?

Don't which distro of Perl you are using. If not ActiveState's distro
then try their install.

http://www.activestate.com/activeperl
http://www.activestate.com/activeperl/downloads

"ActivePerl[50] is an open source distribution from ActiveState that has
regular releases that track the core Perl releases. This free
distribution also includes the Perl Package Manager (PPM), a popular
tool for installing, removing, upgrading, and managing the use of common
Perl modules."

I use ActiveState Perl from 1999 built 522,
all newer releases have a bug.
The bug is confirmed but not handled
