I want to call a compiled vbasic file (prog.exe) from a perl script on a NT server.
I tried:
system ("prog.exe");
and it did not work.  What do I need to do?

If it still doesn't work, print $! after the system and see if it gives a meaningful error.

Another possibility is that the DLLs required by the program aren't in the PATH as inherited by your script, so it can't find them. Try printing $ENV{PATH} and see how it differs from the path you expect. The web server isn't logged on as you, so it might have a different path.
