Force Perl cgi to run as specific id under IIS

    I'm trying to force perl cgi scripts to run under a specific user id
    under IIS. When the cgi script is in a virtual directory where
    anonymous access is enabled the perl script does run as id supplied in
    the directory security tab. However, if authentication is enabled,
    such as Integrated Windows Authentication the perl process runs under
    the id of the authenticated user. I want the perl script to run under
    a specific id regardless of authentication options. I actually had
    this working once but I've been unable to repeat the process. I'm
    running IIS 5.0, Perl 5.8.8 on Windows XP. I've seen examples of
    forcing an MS Office app like Excel to run as a certain id via
    Component Service and DCOM Config but not with Perl. Has anybody else
    been able to do this ? Thanks.
