CGI question

Posted on 1997-07-02

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????

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!
