Perl & Windows 2000

Discussion in 'Perl' started by Justin Kozuch, Jan 13, 2004.

  1. Hi All,

    How do I determine the path to Perl on a Windows 2000 server? My hosting
    company has installed ActiveState Perl (latest version).

    I've called them and they said the path to perl is E:\Perl, however when I
    enter this into my .cgi file, it spits an error back at me.

    Any ideas?

    Justin

    Then you know that they didn't put perl.exe in the root. :)

    What you actually need to know is the path to the Perl compiler. For
    instance you could try:

    E:/Perl/bin/perl

    (No reason to bother about Window's backslashes in Perl programs.)

    Or else you'd better call them again.
