Perl on IIS webserver

I have configured my IIS webserver to run cgi and perl scripts. I have
checked it and confirmed that every thing is set according to instructions
available on internet. I am trying to run  a simple hello perl program and
every time I was getting HTTP Error.
I changed the mapping of .pl file with perlis.dll instead of cqperl.exe
which comes with rational software and resides in "c:\program
perlis.dll did not come with rational software so I copied it from other
machine which has got standard 5.6.1 installation under c:\perl folder.

On using this dll file it says "A dynamic link library (DLL) initialization
routine failed. "

I confirmed that all necessary files are there in system32 folder.

Can any body help me to run my simple help world perl program through URL.
At present it is not reading any thing from file as if I keep file blank
still I get same error messages all the time.

Thanks & Regards,
Hemant Verma
