CGI using Perl running on MS IIS 3.0??

I use to run my CGI script using Perl on a Netscape webserver and all was fine. Now I moved all my files on a server running MS IIS 3.0.

I use Perl to handle request comming from CGI FORM. I have in my cgi-bin directory a file named "perl.bat" which is supposed to call the real Perl.exe using the first argument as the Perl script to run. It's exactly what's adviced to avoid the possibility to run perl command directly (what's possible if the perl.exe is copied in the cgi-bin).

My problem is that when I try to post my FORM, I just get a Window asking me whether I want to save the content of my file. That means the Perl script is not executed!! Why and what am I supposedto change in order to get the same behaviour on my IIS server that I had on the Netscape server. In other words, how to configure my IIS and/or NT server in order to have CGI script using Perl executed correctly?
