isapi problem

i'm relatively new to isapi first of all.. anyway, i'm created a default statically linked isapi extension.. when i try to run it via banus.com/test/tester.dll? it tries to download the file as tester.  instead of running it.. what's going on here?

thanks for your help..

You have to get access to it and change the permission. Or, you may upload your ISAPI DLL into an existing executable directory (something like cgi-bin).

You must be using IIS. Go to the Internet Service Manager and set the test directory to Execute permission.

i'm on a virtual server which means i don't exactly have that kind of access to the nt box

i was hoping i wouldn't have to do that, but it turns out i'll just have to write my dll's properly using the cgi-bin directory.. i'll give you the points anyway.. thanks!
