Wild guess:

Your script uses such a simple subset of Perl that it's concievable that other languages (e.g., JScript) might be able to execute it. Is it possible that the IIS server you're having problems with doesn't have .cgi mapped to Perl? Do other, more complicated Perl scripts work on that box?
