in reply to How to invoke the Win32::ASP perl files, which on Apache web server, WinNT?

I'm not the leading expert on ASP but I'll try to answer some of your questions. First, I found a nice site over at apache-asp.org that provides ASP support to Apache. I believe the problem is that Win32::ASP allows Perl code to execute inside ASP (aka PerlScript) but the web server is already aware of how to handle ASP. I don't believe Apache knows about ASP until you setup a module. Apache::ASP looks like it will enable Apache to detect and process ASP. Good luck!

    Apache::ASP (which the apache-asp.org site is about) is compatible with ASP using PerlScript, but it is a different beast. It runs on mod_perl, so you have to install an Apache built with mod_perl to run it. (Technically CGI is supported, but it would be much too slow for real use.)

    Normal PerlScript ASP stuff is done on IIS, not Apache. You can get information on it from ActiveState.
