What changes need to be made to the registry? Can't Post

Ok, I had this setup working a month ago, then I went and screwed everything up. What changes do I need to make to the registry to use Perl with PWS

the page that won't work is http://24.144.19.198/guestbook/addguest.html go ahead and test it.

PWS allows scripts to run, Perl works from the command prompt, but the wheels just spin with nothing happening when accessed through the internet browser.

I know this is asked alot, but I like to beat dead horses! I added this so far:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE >System>CurrentControlSet>Services>w3svc>parameters>scriptmap>".pl,C:\perl\bin\perl.exe"

Am I supposed to change a explorer file association in the registry as well? Or was this the only registry addition to be made? If it is the only one, why won't the script do anything. Like I said, it works perfectly from the command prompt, just not through the browser, and yes PWS is set to allow READ, EXECUTE, and SCRIPTS in the appropriate folder.



Now what? Please don't suggest changing to another server program, this one is perfect for me. I am just a dork for UNINSTALLING>REINSTALLING it all in the first place. (Long Story)

well, a few days past and noone ever helped me out. I fixed it although I don't know how. all I did was uninstall PWS and reinstall it. I had to change the registry script map entry like I did the first time. don't know what the difference is but whatever, it works now.



No help from this place.Mad

whatever.

I just came across this post.

You probably would have received assistance if you had posted to the right forum. This post belonged in the Programming Help > Beginner (or Win32 Help) forums.
