BTW I have been all over the web but since I am new at this I wanted some expert help. I have made the script simple #!c:\strawberry\perl\bin\perl.exe print "HTTP/1.0 200 OK\n"; print "Content-Type: text/html\n\n\n"; print "Hello World. \n"; Here is what I get from the command prompt HTTP/1.0 200 OK Content-Type: text/html Hello World. Same error from above. I am the only one using this IIS so I doubt its the MS error you have found. Thank you so much for helping me.
