From miker3@ix.netcom.com

If perl.exe and perl.dll are run from the directory c​:\bin, an access
violation occurs when it is run. It appears that the drive is
immaterial
and there may be other directories that cause problems.

The problem is caused by the code​:

  ptr = strrchr(mod_name, '\\');
  if (!ptr || stricmp(ptr+1, strip) != 0) {
  if(!(*strip == '5' && *(ptr+1) == '5' && strncmp(strip, base, 5)
== 0
  && strncmp(ptr+1, base, 5) == 0)) {
  ...

in get_emd_part() in win32.c (code reformated for email).

If strrchr() returns a null pointer, !ptr is true and the controlled
block
is executed. In the second if, *(ptr+1) then causes an access
violation.

I've not yet completely analyzed this code or tested the fix, but
changing the
first if to

  if (ptr && stricmp(ptr+1, strip) != 0)

appears to fix the problem.

This was compiled from the standard distribution with Microsoft Visual
C++
6.0.
