Since I am not overly familiar with compilers on a Microsoft Windows PC I was happy to find a fool-prove and already compiled version of the SAP::Rfc module from Olivier Boudry ( I am one of the many win32-slaves as Piers Harding called this species).
Unfortunately when trying to execute the tables.pl script from the examples directory I do get an error (the error text is in German, so I translate):
Can't load 'D:/Perl/site/lib/auto/SAP/Rfc/Rfc.dll' for module SAP::Rfc: load_file: this application could not be started, since the application configuration is not correct. To fix the problem you should reinstall the application at D:/Perl/lib/DynaLoader.pm line 230. at tables.pl line 5
Can anyone give me a hint how to solve this problem without having to build SAP:Rfc on Windows via Visual Studio Express 2005. What does the error message mean by: "...application configuration is not correct"?
I installed SAP-Rfc-1.42 (but I also tried lower versions) and I have Perl from ActiveState version v5.8.8 built for MSWin32-x86. To install SAP:Rfc I used the command:
ppm install SAP-Rfc.ppd
Thank you very much for your and best greetings Peter
