One thing I always have to do when using CGI on any windows web server. You need to change the perl past on the first line of your script. Change the /user/bin/perl to c:/wamp/perl/bin/perl.exe for example

you also need to set apache to allow perl scripts, open your httpd.conf file and find:
#AddHandler cgi-script .cgi

change it to:
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl

then find:
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

change to:
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes +ExecCGI

save your file, and restart apache for the new settings to take effect.
