    IIS7 & Active Perl Errors


    Hi,

    I have a problem with the latest version of Active Perl v5.14, where errors be them programatically via commands such as die() or compile errors are no longer outputted to the browser.

    Instead all you get is a 500 internal server error!

    I posted in the perl forum...

    http://forums.devshed.com/perl-progr...er-911357.html

    but it has been suggested this is an IIS issue?

    Is it?, and if so how can I fix it?

    Thanks,

    ActivePerl is still around, huh? I haven't used it since back in the 1990's

    One guess if you're using an IIS server and IE, perhaps your IE "show friendly http errors" is on which might supress the actual perl error message.

    Also there are some configuration settings in IIS that control what error information is provided to clients, maybe take a look there too. I haven't done much with IIS since IIS6, I don't know where to look for the settings in IIS7.

    I've tried setting 'sends errors to browser' (though this is for ASP!) , I've changed the error 500 page to show 'detailed'.

    Still nothing?

    I've used FireFox same problem, so 'show friendly' in IE settings has nothing to do with it either.

    I used to love perl, but I'm going off it lately!

    OK, perhaps this is an MS issue, wouldn't suprise me, but why can't I find any other thread on the subject?

    I can't be the only one having this problem with the latest ActivePerl for Windows?
