Hi, Dave, Looking at's support pages and at your error message, I am guessing that the script is being run through Perl. It appears as though only .pl and .cgi extensions are accepted and that these scripts are more tightly bound to perl. I don't know what web server is being used for your hosted site, but the main site is running "Microsoft-IIS/5.0 on Windows 2000" according to Does this seem right? Does anyone know how to "encourage" IIS to run additional cgi scripts through an added in scripting exe? I am guessing that you may not be successful, but lets see if someone knows IIS well enough to help you further. --Scott Jones
