The first suggestion, to leave off the HTTP response header, didn't change my result.

The second suggestion provides meaningful feedback though. I built the Hello World script as you suggested, and it would not execute with the name "test.pl" - I got the same error as before. However, when I changed the extension to cgi, I got a web page with the content "Hello, world!", which is very exciting. I changed the extention of dcdot.pl to dcdot.cgi, but I get the same error. I cleared the cache and tried again, in case, but still not joy. Still, this confirms that I have IIS configured to interpret Perl scripts, which is a good first step.

    1. Your script can die from an unexpected error. Try CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser).
    2. Your script can generate warnings before the headers are printed. Some webservers break the execution of the script in this case.
    3. Check the output of your script again! Content/type... must be the first line it prints.
