Hello Per,

Thank you for the very quick answer, however this does not solve my
problem. If I try to use the shebang line i receive a different error
message in the error.log. Here it is:

[Tue Jun 18 00:24:18 2002] [error] [client] couldn't
spawn child process: e:/apache/apache/cgi-bin/hello.cgi

And then I can't even run .pl scripts either. I guess Apache does not
find Perl.exe, but I don't know why. That's why I settled with the
registry solution. But chi still does not run.... :(
