sendmail pdf file Can't Post

I am a newbie with perl 5.19 running on NT. In response to a web form, I can attach a txt file to an email. however, a pdf doesn't work. It arrives corrupted.
I am using Matt's script called formhandler which shows sending pdf as an example.
Is the problem with file formats that may have changed since the script was written? The form field value is mime: /path/path/filename.pdf

use MIME::Lite;

# Create a new message:
$msg = new MIME::Lite
From =>'',
To =>'',
Cc =>',',
Subject =>'A message with 2 parts...',
Type =>'TEXT',

attach $msg
Type =>'TEXT',
Path =>'hi.pdf',
Filename =>'hi.pdf';

Send a message:

# Send in the "best" way (the default is to use "sendmail"):
