Windows NT installation

Can you run RT on an Windows NT Workstation?
Are there reports from anybody?

I have run Perl 5.6, Apache and Mysql successfully, however not
mod_perl, and I don’t know if all required modules are available for
ActivePerl.

Is there a list of all required modules?
Any Windows-specific issues to watch out for?

Thanks,

Marcus

i’ve had no luck at it :frowning: I don’t think it will ever run on NT…
too
many
unix ties… at any rate, tell me if you have any luck at all :slight_smile:

Are there any similar Perl applications to RT which could be
recommended and are known to run on NT?

Linux and FreeBSD will typically run just fine on cheap hardware. :slight_smile:

(I don’t know of anything -free- for NT. Remedy is a commonly-chosen
commercial product.)

So, to the best of my knowledge, a port of RT to NT has never been attempted,
but I don’t know of anything that is actually unix specific in the code.

Apache, mod_perl, mysql and DBD::mysql all run on NT. I suspect that
most of the work needed to do a port is actually in the installation tools.

But no, I’ve not heard of any windows-based tool that’s equivalent to RT.

attempted,

code.

So no commands which make portability problematic such as exec, fork,
system commands?
I guess chmod or trying to suid could cause problems.

Can those things be commented out?

Basically, the only problem is when a module which uses C code has not
been compiled for use on Windows, or will not run on Windows. So, I
just need to find out about the modules.

Not free, but fairly cheap: http://www.wonderdesk.com It’s written in
perl, with either a flat file ($499) or MySQL backend ($1,499). It seems
to have similar functionality to RT. It’s not my intention to start a
discussion about whether it’s better than RT or not. I’m a very happy
RT user. I learned about wonderdesk only when the main campus help desk
chose to adopt it instead of RT, which I recommended. Wonderdesk runs on
Win2K and Unix/Linux.

Thanks again for RT!
