For .pl, you need to make sure that the perl is installed correctly, this involves some registry settings.  I have answered the similar question on perl installtion with PWS for a lot of times in CGI or PERL topic so you can just check them out.

For .cgi, that depends on what kind of cgi it is.  If .cgi is itself an executable file, then it is just like .exe, if it is also a perl script, then you shall treat it as .pl, when you know how to deal with .pl you will know how to do it.
