You need to tell IIS that should be executed whenever a Embperl
page is requested. (which is part of the Embperl distribution)
will take care to handle the actual processing to Embperl. So first of all I
would try to map the .pl extention to perlis.dll (I think that is already
done by the ActiveState setup program), then you could copy
somewhere in a directory that is accessable form outside can request a page


if this works, you can map the epl extention to and it should
work. If this final step also works, you should move the in some
other directory, so it isn't directly accessable from the web anymore, to
make thinks more secure.

If you have any further questions let me know, if you getting this setup to
work, I would be very happy, if you can write a few words about what you
have done, so I can include it in the Embperl documentation.
