Internet Information Services (IIS) 7 and IIS 8 require setting Handler Mappings for CGI-exe. Without this set, you will receive errors executing config.cgi.

Please refer to the Technical White Paper for detailed instructions, or follow the simplified steps below:

  1. Go to IIS > Handler Mappings
  2. Right click CGI-exe > Edit Feature Permissions > check Execute > OK
  3. Right click CGI-exe > Change Request Path to *.cgi > OK
  4. Reload config.cgi.
