    in pws or iis, right click the directory in which that file lives in, and in the directory tab, make sure scripts only (or scripts and executables if necessary) is selected towards the bottom, under "execute permissions". If "none" is selected then it wont work.

    also, check that the internet guest account has read and execute permissions on the file/directory.

    if necessary, add write, if a file is being written to from that script it will need it.

    I had problems running the PHP Zipped package in Win98 (similar to ME) even after following the instructions.

    Don't know why still? In 2000 it worked fine.

    I ended up using the slower CGI installer. The installation was flawless.

    It still runs the scripts pretty fast though.
