in reply to CGI::Session on Windows, can't reread file

I'm thinking there is a file permission problem in Windows,

If there was you would get an error

where to start looking.

Start with making sure you have the latest CGI/CGI::Session, then employ Basic debugging checklist and Data::Dump the CGI object and the CGI::Session object at strategic points in your program, and try to figure it out :)

    Yeah, you’d think so, but sometimes important errors just get eaten by eval{} structures buried deep-somewhere, and they can be so way-deep that you never do find them.   (Plus, Windows code is often “tested” by Administrators.)   It is annoying, yes, and shouldn’t be that way, yes, but ... when something goes wonkers for “an ordinary user” (i.e. a corporate Joe) in the Windows environment, then permissions, especially to common or temporary files, less-so to the registry keys, have become my first-guess.   (And certainly not “just with Perl.”   Windows has become too-complex for its own good.)   ;-)
