This might just annoy you .... so if it does just ignore it.
I have seen dozens of questions about the challenges that you are facing
on this list.
What I am missing is why run IIS when you can run
the Xitami server and avoid this stuff? The only answer
I have come to so far that makes any sense is that
your employer has decreed using IIS so you are running
this server at your corporate address.
I put a rebol script in my cgi directory including stuff like
#! c:\Rebol\View\rebol.exe -cs
print "Content-Type: text/html^/" ;-- Required Page Header
Because of the #!, I can call this script any file name extension I like and
have to make an association between this extension and
launching REBOL. One option is to call it .htm so it looks
like a simple page fetch. Or any other extension like .jsp .pl
if that is what makes people feel comfortable.
Sorry if this is too obvious or well known. I just know that I tried IIS /
as well and spent a lot of hours on it. It was champagne opening time
when I got it to work. But since I went to Xitami and REBOL
I have not had one of these "*sigh*".
No reply is needed ... just Sunday morning coffee pondering.
