Perl64 installs into C:\perl64\bin

Can we include this path in the search list?

I don't mind to add perl64 to the search path.

OTOH, perl is not a prerequisite in the first place for building Python with OpenSSL. Why do you think you need it?

Can ths be closed as "not a bug"?

At one point the version of OpenSSL on did not have the correct makefiles for a 64-bit Windows build, but this was resolved. You also don't need 64-bit Perl to generate these files, and the file has been renamed to "" and appears to only be used for creating the makefiles for checking into SVN (perhaps it should move to Tools?).

It's a trivial patch, but considering I don't even know who runs the file, I'm not going to go and mess with it. Zach and/or Tim presumably know.

It's a harmless patch, but not especially necessary.  If you need the perl.exe that's in C:\Perl64\bin, just do "set PATH=C:\Perl64\bin;%PATH%" before you invoke the script.

There is no longer a file in the PCBuild directory so can this be closed.
msg240410 - (view) Author: Zachary Ware (zach.ware) * (Python committer) Date: 2015-04-10 03:56 is now, the patch still applies to 2.7 and 3.4 as well.
