    IIS CGI Setup Issue


    Iím trying to move an old CGI app developed in Delphi to a new server. Both old and new running IIS 6.0.

    Iíve configured both servers in the same way and thoroughly compared the two setups. But the new server is not working with 500 Internal Server Errors.

    The CGI application consists of three executable files (for example a.exe, b.exe and c.exe). When I add one of the executables (a.exe) to the serverís IIS extension mappings for the Ďexeí extension that one CGI script (a.exe) works fine but of course all other calls to b.exe and c.exe will run a.exe.

    Adding this exe mapping is the only way I can get the script to run.

    Any ideas on what might be missing in the serverís CGI/IIS setup?

    Thanks for any help

    Maybe you have some permission settings somewhere that are different. And in IE turn off 'show friendly http errors' and maybe you'll get to see the real error message.
