Strawberry Perl 5.20.2
Pidgin had been working fine and running a Perl plugin. After a Windows
"Update and Restart", Pidgin no longer loads Perl. The debug window shows:
plugins: probing C:\Program Files (x86)\Pidgin\plugins\perl.dll
plugins: C:\Program Files (x86)\Pidgin\plugins\perl.dll is not loadable:
`C:\Program Files (x86)\Pidgin\plugins\perl.dll': A dynamic link library
(DLL) initialization routine failed.
The same thing happened last week. I uninstalled and reinstalled various
versions of Pidgin and Perl three or four times, and eventually hit the
magic combination and it started working again.
