Hi....

Does anyone have any idea on how to get perl scripts to be run as CGI apps on MS Personal Web server with Windows 95?

Thanks.

Run regedit and look for the following entry.

    MyComputer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\W3Svc\Parameters\Script

     map

   you need an entry for .pl with the value
   "c\perl\bin\perl.exe %s %s" (or equivalent path)

   The main point being the two %s value (although only one can also work)

   You also need to ensure that the directory running the scripts is set up to be executable using the
   administration page of PWS
