I am not at my server now but I do have Perl running
with no problem on IIS4.

It was suggested to me on the MSNews group for IIS
that I use the same registry modification as was used in

Located in MSKB at:

The only difference was to only use one %s

With IIS4 you also need to register .pl with the domain/directory
you want make executable. The script registration needs
to be identical to that used in the NT registry. (with %s)

After that the scripts worked perfectly. FYI: I have not checked as to
whether the single %s was the trick yet as I had to move on to
the next fire.

Be sure to verify you permissions also. I have always found it
easiest to open them up completely, get things functional and
then tighten them and re-verify functionality.

I have not looked into it very far yet but has anyone setup a
common CGI directory for all hosted domains the way you
could in IIS3. I would like to setup a directory of common scripts
with a relative access rather than the full domain url. If you have
done this how did you assign the address?

Anyway, I hope this helps.
