Perlkid I am really close

I was reviewing all my peas (oh wait, I mean pleas) for a clue. when the last message you sent me in the last topic I wrote (the one with 16 messages) and I may have had my head up my ass. As far as the relative path goes. I will be attempting cgi again with PWS and a win 98 machine at home dcom is installed and the name is (lets just say http://greg/) now you probably have more of a clue as to where I am now so if you have any suggestions fire away
and the snow cone still stands!!

Re: Perlkid I am really close

So Sorry For Finding that message so late Mate,

I've been really busy lately. Geting our site to run on win 98 for demos.

Well, Ive installed pws, dcom, and perl on two machines with complete success. So I think well get you going this time.

Step By Step Follow these,

A Plus If You have front page 2000, do you have it?

Also completely unistall PWS, and PERL!!!

1. Install Pws, Latest version. If you don't have the latest version I'll get it to you. One version that works great is on the windows 98 second edition cd. It in the add ons folder in the pws folder then click setup.

2. Now Install The DCOM Module, Yes Again.

3. Install The MSI Installer If You Don't Have The Latest Version Already.

4. Then Restart.

5. Install Perl Then Restart

6. Go to Start Menu, Run, then type "regedit" Then Go to the Script Map folder located in

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\w3svc\parameters\Script Map

Add the string value .pl then .cgi. Right Click on them then click modify.


C:\Perl\bin\Perl.exe %s %s

For both of them.

8. Go to your explorer menu add cgi-bin in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\

Then double click on the PWS Icon, then go to the advanced options, then add a directory. Browse till you find the C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\cgi-bin

Make sure you allow it to execute.

9. Now Restart and add a cgi file in the cgi-bin and run it from you browser,

That's it.

Good Luck Email me if it goes well, or actually just tell me what happends.

Thanks Gotta Go Now.

Re: Perlkid I am really close

I thought it was time for a thank you reply
I have not gotten to your steps just yet either but I am sure I will have better luck when I try it. i already could pick out one step I did backwards
thanks again
off hand do you know of a good file preloader?? and any pluggins for mac or netscape using Microsoft Agent????
just curious, I doubt that there are any plugins and I know there is a quality preloader outthere so when ever you get this, give a whirl.
did you get the snowcone I sent ya??

Re: Perlkid I am really close

 You welcome, I think you should check javascripts.com for a preloader, I have one on a cdr somewhere too but I can't find it, heh.

Email me for any further help.
