I had the same problem, and solved it with two lines of perl:

chdir("c:/radius"); #goto radius directory#
exec 'radlogin *reload* xxx'; #force a reload#

where there exists a user as such in the users file:

*reload* Password = "xxx"

You need to have a servers file,etc (see docs) to run radload.exe.
I also have my path (on an nt) set to include directions to my radius
directory; else;
exec 'c:\\radius\\radlogin *reload* xxx';
should work as well.
I need the chdir() so that radlogin can find the files it needs.
I run the script (a form handler) when new users sign up to my server
<form action="path to script">
It has not been fully tested, but so far seems to work...hope this
