DOS .EXE as CGI

I use MS Personal WEB Server running on windows-95.
I made simple C++ CGI program:

#include <stdio.h>
int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{  puts("Content-type: text/html\n\n");
   puts("<HTML><BODY><H1>TEST123</H1></BODY></HTML>\n");
   return 0;
}

Compiled it with Borland C++ 3.0. And tried to execute it
as http://.../cgi-bin/program.exe. In the result browser
waits infinitely long.

Then i added few lines to source that writes a test word to local file to test if program was executed. The result was positive.

Then i removed this line: puts("Content-type: text/html\n\n"); to check if there was any output.

In the result browser shows me error message.

What is wrong then ?

hi!

please install WebSite (by OReily) as your www server - it's more comfortable for you!

You may use for cgi program DOS BAT files, WinCGI, Perl5 and anything else!

But if you want to stay with IIS you must find some patch for using DOS progrmas as CGI.

WBR!
