Ah, that's a shame. I recently got everybody's workstations upgraded to
Dwim Perl (from ActivePerl 5.8 and a similarly ancient wxWidgets).[*1]

If I compile Wx using Strawberry 5.14.3, should that module then work if
deployed to something still on

Yeah, that makes sense.

Thanks for your help.


[*1] Ironically I chose Dwim Perl over Strawberry was because it comes
with Wx, so I thought that would make life simpler. Unfortunately
wxWidgets 2.8 has some regressions in terms of user interface behaviour
when compared with the ancient version people were using, so it turns
out I don't want to use the Wx that comes with Dwim Perl anyway ...
