I have installed the microsoft personal web server on my win95 machine and I can no get it to run cgi scripts.  I have placed them in the cgi-bin.  The script I wrote reguires cgi-lib.pl and I have put that in the directory as well.  The script is very simple.  It just takes one input value and writes it to a txt file.  In the script, do I need to give it a new path for the perl program ie: #!/usr/bin/perl.  Also, do I need to download perl.exe if so, where would I find it?  I have tried finding my answer in the help file that accompanied PWS and I have found nothing. If someone could help it would be great.

You need to download perl.  I recommend ActiveState's port.  Go to www.activestate.com and download it from there.  They also have a good FAQ on setting up your Webserver to use perl.  Good Luck, and post more questions when you have them.
