The libwin32 doesn't exist anymore (it's become a bundle), of the individual
modules that comprise it, I can only speak for Win32-API and Win32-OLE in
their latest incarnations.  They both build, but have a few test problems. 
Win32-API apparently has the same problems for both 32bit and 64bit, so it
may be a test issue.  For Win32-OLE, again both architectures, the Excel
test fails, which looks like a problem of the version of Excel I'm using
(Excel complains it doesn't have enough memory, those failures started after
an update of Excel).


Regards,
Achim.
