dmake test failure building 5.8.0 on Windows 2000

Because Active State haven't yet built the additional modules I will
require I'm trying to build Perl 5.8.0 from source using dmake and the
Borland C++ command line compiler from the cmd.exe command shell on a
MS Windows 2000 (Service Pack 2) machine.

The build stage appears to go correctly but dmake test generates a
failure with /lib/Test/Simple/t/fail-more.t. I don't follow the
detailed working of this test but it appears to be checking the
working of the Test::More module which, because it is used in writing
test scripts, rather undermines my confidence in the majority of
passed tests.

Any ideas on the nature of the problem and how I might overcome it?

The outputs from perl -V and perl lib\Test\Simple \t\fail-more.t

The problem is basically in the subject line. I am building an Intranet site based on Zope/CMF/Plone. In order to fulfill the requirements Zope/Python must be run on Windows. Zope is running as a Wi32 service. When the python.exe process consume ~122MB (according to the Windows Task Manager) I start receiving MemoryError: out of memory exceptions. I've already checked for bad RAM and the server's RAM appears good.

Hi everybody! I am experiencing a problem when trying to run a C# .NET user control in MSIE on Windows 2000. On Windows XP SP2, the same code runs without problems. The .NET security settings have been set to full trust, the IE security to low, but still the component does not run.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
