Help in running the perl script Can't Post

I am trying to run a perl script on PWS.
I have configured the server to run Perl.
When I run it in the browser,
for example, http://localhost/cgi-bin/

It is giving the following error.
Can anyone help me what is the problem

HTTP Error 403
403.1 Forbidden: Execute Access Forbidden

This error can be caused if you try to execute a CGI, ISAPI, or other executable program from a directory that does not allow programs to be executed.

Please contact the Web server's administrator if the problem persists.

Launch the "Personal Web Manager" (e.g., by double-clicking on the PWS icon in the system tray). Click the "Advanced" icon. Create a "virtual directory" for cgi-bin by selecting <Home> and clicking Add... Set the Directory to wherever you cgi-bin is, and the Alias to "cgi-bin". Click "Execute" and "Scripts". Click OK. Then try your script again.

I tried creating a virtual directory with alias cgi-bin. It says the directory already exists. I am not able to edit. When I click on edit directory, under alias it is disabled
and it has <HOME>. Please help me how to get
rid of this error
