Both servers or configured same. no difference at all. I use ScriptAlias. I did
not use ExecCGI.

Without using ExecCGI it working on my 1st PC.

When tried to run the executable on the 2nd PC i got the error "Premature end
of script headers" then
i installed Active perl , and the module i used to make excutable. And i
created the executable on 2nd pc, then also i got the same error message.

Thanks a lot
