Configuring my server to run CGIs.

Last Modified: 2013-12-25
I have a CGI script to execute my form, but when I submit the form, I get the error '%1 is not a valid Windows NT application'.  I know that this means my server(NT 4.0) is not configured correctly to run CGIs.  My question is, how DO I configure the server to do this?

Are you certain the script .exe is a 32-bit executable?

What kind of script? What application runs the script?

What kind of server, and what version?

What kind and version of *web* server?

Normally if the directory isn't mapped for scripts the 501 Not Supported error will come up, not "is a valid executable". But the errors aten't always consistent.
