    A quick search for perl.exe on my windows box gave me this path:

    C:\Program Files\SWsoft\Plesk\Additional\Perl\bin

    As for sendmail, that's technology that normally used on Linux servers and not on Windows servers. Are you sure you are trying to install a product that is compatible with Windows?

    Well,

    It really depends on what you want to do, but no normally your customers don't have to know where Perl is located unless they want to use it from the command line.

    Hi

    Thank you for your answer, but i find it not secure that users of my servers has or must use the direct path to anything. i cant understand why it is not made so that plesk makes a folder eg. /perl/ where we have the other folders like /httpdocs/ or /cgi-bin/

    Regards John

    SendMail is not originally in windows - but there are a lot of sendmail programs for windows.

    I found one that works like a charm - without bugs.

    folder "sendmail" contains 4 files:
    sendmail.exe
    sendmail.ini (configuration file)
    debug.log
    error.log

    I usualy put sendmail folder and files in folder /cgi-bin on every hosting that needs sendmail - than set write permission on files debug.log and error.log to IUSR_hosting_acc and in perl files path to sendmail I set "sendmail/sendmail.exe" and works...

    If anyone needs it mail me: aris@diskom.si
