First, your scripts must be in a directory that has the execute access, you do this by config the PWS.  Next, you should check your registry, under the key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\W3Svc\Parameters\Script Map", there should be a value associate ".pl" (or other extension you choose) with "perl.exe %s" or "PerlIS.dll" (the former is better but the latter is faster).

If all these is correct, make sure the url in the html is correct, it should point to "http://127.0.0.1/yourpath/somename.pl".

Hope this help.

My cgi-bin directory has world read/execute access, added the .pl extensions to my registry as you suggested, and reset the default script parameters to <default>, now I am asked where I want to save the .pl file...(?)

I made a cardinal error... forgot to stop and restart the PWS... once I did this every thing works fine, shoulda remembered this from my UNIX days.

Normally you should not assign read to cgi-bin directory.

I know, I'm still off line for now, once I get ready to go on line, all permissions will be reset.

Has anyone been able to get FormMail to work with Blat on a PWS?

Thanks,

Yes, I tried blat and it works fine.  But I wrote my own cgi to sendmail because blat has a lot functions (such as attachment) that I don't need which cause some overhead (temporary file)
