Install Problem (.pl vs .cgi extensions)
Hi! Trying to install GForum for the first time on a Windows server. My problem is this: all of the perl scripts I've installed before, if they aren't already all .pl extensions, I have to do a replace function in all the files to replace .cgi with .pl and then rename all the files correctly. This has worked with no problem with all the other scripts I've installed.

However, once GForum unpacks, there are SO many files, that it will take me forever to do this. But it won't run the admin script unless I do. Is there some way to do this before it unpacks so that it automatically corrects itself? Or some other way to get it to run on a Windows server that looks for .pl extensions?

Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!
