I get prompted what I want to save it as.  Instead of the Script running.  Any clues?

I assume you're running Windows.
You need to install Microsoft's Personal Web Server (PWS): http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/pws/default.htm

Not onlt install PWS, but perl is not a MS product(actually ANTI-MS).

You need to get perl from perl.com or perl.org and put it in a directory(c:\perl) and associate the PL extention with PERL and you will be all set.

This WILL work.  I have done it many times for many clients.  If this works I will re-post as an answer.

If you're running Personal Web Server and ActivePerl for Windows you must make sure the entry .pl of

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\W3Svc\Parameters\Script Map\

points to perlis.dll

for examples, on my computer it is: C:\Perl\5.00502\bin\MSWin32-x86-object\perlis.dll

Use Regedit.exe to check it please!
