 In order for you to be able to call an EXE is must be a valid CGI, and act
 as such, so it should return ( at the least ) the HTTP header:
 Content-type: text/html\n\n
 If your script is not, then that is the reason, but as you say above
 if works sometimes and sometimes not...then there may be other variables.
 Whether or not it works from the command line is irrelevant, as you
 are working in a different env than the command, line....
 Also this doesn't sound like an Apache problem, but rather a problem with
 your CGI [exe] or a config problem.
