Setting Perl IIS Max Execution Time

dale_abrams used Ask the Experts™
I am looking for a way to set the maximum execution time for Perl scripts that are being run through the browser on a Win 2003 server. I have a remote contractor that needs to be able to debug scripts that will run through the interpreter once they are built and debugged. The problem is that the scripts are long and they keep timing out. I have looked in the IIS settings and cannot find any place to make the change. Also, as I understand it to be, there is no Perl php.ini like file where you can set maximum_execution_time.
