Running PXN8 on IIS 6.0

IIS 6.0 is proving to be a strange beast.
The core PXN8 functionality (the image manipulation) is written in Perl, which means that if you want to run PXN8 on Microsoft’s Internet Information Server, you will get the best performance using ActiveState’s Perl ISAPI plugin. (You can find some relevant links here).
For some reason IIS6.0 and Perl can’t agree on what the current working directory is which means that PXN8 perl modules won’t load unless they are copied into the C:\Perl\site\lib folder. This is just a stop-gap solution until I figure out how I can set the current working directory in IIS 6.0

This is not a problem in IIS 5.1

Just so ye know.
