modifying the paths information.
Although it says to keep all the scripts files in "c:\inetsrv\scripts"

kept it in the \wwwroot directory, and browse it, it wants me to save the
Following Richard's suggestion I tried adding .pl support to "Register File
Type" using Regedit (using *.pl for identifier, and command is perl %1).This
didn't help me.
