Enable IIS Server to run Perl and CGI Scripts


At first you must have to install ActivePerl from https://www.activestate.com/activeperl. While you are doing this, you will found a link to version 5.10 for Windows (x86). Download from this link an MSI installer for your laptop which you want to run.

If you are running the 64 bit version of Windows 2007, make it ensure that, your application pool is configured to run as 32 bit. Follow the steps-

1. In Windows 'Start' menu, go to run and type inetmgr. Then click 'OK".

2. In the left hand pane of IIS Manager, open up the settings for your server. Click on "Application Pools".

3. Now in the  Application Pools page, select "DefaultAppPool".

4. In the right hand pane, under "Edit Application Pool", click on "Advance Settings…"

5. In the Advanced Settings dialog, ensure that "Enable 32-bit Applications" is set to "True".

The process is now only starting. Visit the site to complete the full setup- https://blogs.iis.net/wadeh/running-perl-on-iis-7
