Hi,

I know I must be doing something stupid but can't see what it is and was hoping someone might be able to help me out.

I've followed the instructions suggested to setup perl on this forum and then tried running a tiny perl script called test.cgi which I have placed in my htdocs directory but all that happens is tha the file is viewed instead of actually executed?

If I place the same file in the cg-bin directory I get an Error 404.

I'm running Windows XP Pro and have perl in C:aPerl\bin\perl.exe.

Thanks for any help !

Ian

Your Perl interpreter path is wrong if its what you have now. It should be set
as C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe by default , please read the instructions again. LateR!
