Have you successfully run other CGI programs on your system, or is the first one?

You are using VB5 32 bit, right? Using VB5 16 bit is one of the possible causes for a server error.

Normally if the path was wrong you'd get 404 File Not Found, not a 500 Server Error (500 is what you get, right?)

Please be more specific.  Like what is the server you are using. full URL to the example you use, etc.

Sincerely,
