Perl Config::Inifiles error

Simple code but can't open the .ini file I want to read:
use Config::IniFiles;

my $ini = Config::IniFiles->new(-file => 'test.ini');
error is:
Failed to open test.ini:  No such file or directory at line 3

Even when I give the full path to the file I get the same error.

Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?

Maybe check of the file has read permission. Also do you use forward slashes in the path name?

This is Windows.  When I look at the file type, it is listed as a shortcut.

I have tried \\ on the path as well.
Windows shortcuts aren't really dynamic links, like they are in unix. You can either point to the actual file location, or use something like this
