IIS 5 CGI application configuration

By yuemo ·

Recently somehow one of our web application is broken. The web server is IIS on windows 2000. The cgi appliation is some exe file.

When trying to access the web site, the browser ask to download the .exe file rather than exeucte it on the server as expected. I know there is a quick configuration correction for this, but could not recall what it is.

I appreciate any help on this.

Make sure that the virtual directory that houses the EXE has Read and Execute permissions. If not IIS handles it as a request for a file liek Word, etc.

Not a problem for the permission. "Read" is checked. And Execute permissions is "Scripts adn Executables".
