I want to be able to test cgi scripts using a regular internet browser WITHOUT being connected to the internet. I have windows 95A however, I do not have conagent.exe which is required to run 32-bit dos applications like the apache webserver. So I tried winhttpd and couldnt get it to start, Xitami works as a server but the cgi does not work. so where can I get everything
(perl interpreter for cgi and http server) that would work for either windows 3, Dos, or Windows 95 (which doesnt require the 32-bit dos box support)? or better yet, where can I find conagent.exe so I can enable dos box?

Hi,

You posted this question before... Did you try the MS Personal Web Server like I suggested?
Its part of the NT4 Option pack...

http://www.microsoft.com/ntserver/nts/downloads/recommended/NT4OptPk/default.asp

(remove spaces from the above URL)

It will be able to run CGI scripts fine!?

Cheers,
Tim.

I was looking around and yes I saw references to Microsoft's Information Server. The problem is that it requires Internet Explorer 4 to be installed and that will take up way too much space on my hard drive. I am not asking for a suite.

Well you mentioned "regular internet browser" in your question. Browsers dont get any more "regular" than IE. Besides, if you dont test against IE, then you're not testing against the majority of browsers in use out there!

Requiring IE hardly makes it a suite! IE is bundled with Win95 and you would have had to specifically remove it if you dont have it now!

You may need to upgrade it, but thats a different issue... Are you really that strapped for space on your hard drive? It may be time to consider upgrading. Win95 is too old to develop on now, anyway - you need to be using a current, supported OS... if thats what you're doing?

...unless of course you're just mucking around with it.

Cheers,
Tim.
