32bit service on windows 64bit

    Hello,
    I am having an issue with running a 32bit service on windows 64bit.
    The service is a special rpc listener written in perl. This works
    perfectly fine as a service on all 32bit flavors of windows. It is
    not working for the 64bit version of windows. The rpc listener is not
    starting if being started as a service. It will start fine if done
    manually on the commandline, by running the perl file. Does anyone
    have any ideas as to why this would be happening?

  2. Just guessing - a 64bit process cannot execute a 32bit process directly, or
    call a 32bit DLL - your installed PERL interpreter, running in WOW mode,
    however, should have no problems doing that.
