You either need to set the correct path to the perl interpreter on the shebang line in your scripts or add the ScriptInterpreterSource directive to the httpd.conf file.  The directive could be set globally or put in a Directory block.

<Directory "C:/Program Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/cgi-bin">
    ScriptInterpreterSource Registry
    AllowOverride None
    Options None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>
