cgi question

I've installed the Excite searching engine on our webserver 11 times so far
and every single installation produces the same results. The very last
thing the installation tells you to do is type in:

This is what is returned:

CGI Error
The specfied CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of
HTTP headers. The headers it did return are:

create process failed: 3

Does anyone have any ideas what is going on here? Perl scripts run just
fine from that same directory. I've gone through permissions, etc. and I'm
finding nothing that would indicate the source of the problem.

NT 4.0 Server (Intel) SP2 with appropriate post-sp2 hot-fixes (including
IIS-fix), IIS 3.0

Thanks for any tips,
