CGI question

rnolan asked
Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2013-12-25
I have created a CGI program, compiled and run it, so that it outputs the HTML code successfully.
Next I placed the program in the CGI-Bin of my server, and I reference it in my HTML code in the 'action' propertity.
I am in a windows NT4.0 OS and am on a DNS server.
When I click on the 'Submit' Button I get this error message
"HTTP/1.0 500 Server Error (Unable to perform a security operation on an object which has no associated security.) "
I feel I need to change the properties options in the CGI program in my cgi-bin.
What is the problem????

Don't recognise the error as such but has the script got world read and execute permissions?



You didn't tell us what OS and web server you are using. You may also want to increase the points to make your question more interesting.

If you are using a 16bits compiler, try to compile in a 32bits.
Some of this errors appening when the system is 32bits and the program is 16bits!

Hope it help!
