Problems running js files on MS-IIS.

We have installed IIS 4.0, and try to operate our application there (HTML+client JavaScript+PERL CGIs).
We could operate JavaScripts that were written in the same file as the HTML.
We could not operate JavaScripts that were on a separate file with a ".js" extension:
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" SRC="test.js" >
In the application mapping (In the definition of the site->Properties->Home Directory->Configuration) we mapped "js" to "Jscript.dll".
The result was some numbers thrown on the browser -
16389 (0x00004005).
What's wrong with what we had done, and what should be done?
How can one operate from IIS a JavaScript which is in a different file than the HTML?

You need to map it to the mime type


js is executed by the browser, not the server.

I have definition for this mime-type in my browser, but I think there should be a similar one on the server. Where is the exact place this definition should be?

   1.From the server, run REGEDT32.
