Windows File Permissions  

Normally, Perl scripts run with no need to set any permissions on Windows Servers. However, in some rare instances, the server might not be setup to allow the Perl CGI scripts to have "Write Access" to their files. If this is the case than the program will display a message indicating that it is unable to write to it's data files.

Unfortunately there is no easy way to remotely change file permissions on Windows servers, so unless you can directly access the server you'll need to ask your web hosting provider to change the file permissions for you.

Listed below is the procedure for setting up Perl scripts on Windows machines that don't automatically set permissions. Please note that you'll need Administrator access to the server in order to make these changes.
