    It doesn't let me run Perl scripts, although I can run C++ fine...the only thing I can think of would be the permissions on the folder being set wrong, but I checked and they are ok...

    DO you have the path to ActivePerl set right in your NT path statement? Check at the Activestate.com website and see if anyone else has had the same problems also.


    p.s. This really belongs in the Forum dedicated to programming languages.

    I just wanted to say I use Active Perl on my win2k box at home and I just used the install from the CD (I didn't set the paths myself) and it works fine. You could try running them by opening the dos emulator first and giving it a full path or whatever instead of just double clicking them.

    Sorry if itís off topic wluke, just wanted to help the person

    I'm running Win2k with ActivePerl installed. It didn't work at first so I...
    1) DLed the latest version
    2) Opened up the Internet Services Manager
    3) Opened up the properties for my w3svc (WWW Service)
    4) Went to the Home Directory Tab
    5) Hit the configure button
    6) Hit the "add" button
    7) Entered C:\perl\bin\perl.exe (?) in the textbox for the path
    8) Made the script extension .pl
    9) Limited verbs to GET, POST
    10) Applied
    11) And now it works.
