Tha answer is yes.

You need to do some config: map a directory to the cgi directory and let it has the execute access but not read access.  Then put any .pl file in that directory and it should be OK.  If it is not, your perl is not installed perfectly.  Check the registry (using regedit.exe), it should has such an entry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\W3Svc\Parameters\Script Map.

Under this key, there should be a name ".pl" with the value of either "c:\perl\bin\perl.exe %s" or "C:\Perl\bin\PerlIS.dll" (use the correct path on your PC).
