The easiest way to do this is the following:

Go to the start menu, and type 'cmd' (don't hit enter), which will locate the Windows command-line shell.

Right click this, and select 'Run as Administrator'. Then change directory to the WebMO installation directory ('cd WebMO.install') and run the setup program ('perl setup.pl')

You must also have the Apache webserver and Perl installed, as in the normal Windows XP installation instructions:

I have Apache and Perl installed on WIN Vista, and ran setup.pl, entered my password and license #, and when I entered the URL, http://Mike-PC/cgi-bin/webmo/login.cgi I got a "404 Not Found

The requested URL /cgi-bin/webmo/login.cgi was not found on this server."

When I followed directions to uninstall WebMO, I noticed that there was no webmo directories in Apache2.2/htdocs and Apache2.2/cgi-bin. I tried to setup.pl again, and the program tells me to use upgrade.pl since it detects a previous version of WebMO installed. Any help is appreciated.

It is necessary to run the setup.pl script as an administrator. See the above post (January 9, 2009) for how to do that on Vista.

Thanks for your reply. I ran setup.pl as an administrator and got the following error when I entered the URL http://mike-PC/cgi-bin/webmo/login.cgi

>Software error:

>Cannot open HTML file: No such file or directory >at C:/Program Files/Apache Software >Foundation/Apache2.2/cgi-bin/webmo/login.cgi >line 96.

>For help, please send mail to the webmaster >(wmdaniel@gmail.com), giving this error message >and the time and date of the error.

I did not email wmdaniel since he is kind of slow :-).

I get the following when i try to verify that Perl is properly installed.
C:\>perl c:perl\eg\example.pl
'perl' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Further, the 'http://localhost/cgi-bin/webmo/login.cgi' item does not work.
Can someone help. The Apache local host does return "It works'.

To Raymond Thomas,

'perl' is not recognized as an internal or external command, :

Please follow JR Schmidt's suggestion. You have to run cmd as an administrator to run perl. What can I say? Vista sucks!
