It's much older technology than you bantered around last week at your meeting, but perhaps there's a crufty cubby hole that's got an answer to share.

That would be mod_perl, or possibly FastCGI. FastCGI didn't get me
anywhere, but these search terms:

    mod_perl IIS "Windows 7"

... led me to this, which looks like a match to the problem and has a
plausible-sounding workaround:


I have no idea whether mod_perl is actually involved in this case. The
post implies that there is such a thing for IIS.

Good luck!
