Most of the problems I've ever had with apache stem from user rights issues.  I'd start there.  Make sure your internet user account has access to execute and read that script file.  Apache may also require defining a scripts folder...

Another thing that may be beneficial to other users is the following question:  Do other scripts run currently, or do no scripts work at all?
