Re: 2 brain cells colliding [In reply to] Can't Post

Here's the bad news. If you screw up the registry entry for .cgi, you need to uninstall and reinstall PWS before it'll work. PWS hangs on to the first registry setting it sees for .cgi, even after you change it. Thank you, Microsoft.

Before you reinstall, confirm that what you did in the registry for .cgi matches what's there for .pl

Also, you'd help yourself get answers quicker if you'd post in the right place, rather than all over the forum. The place for this question is in the Win32 section.
