Thanx Michael. But the problem was the order in which i had placed the
Alias and ScriptAlias configs in the httpd.conf file. I had'nt placed
Alias before ScriptAlias.Thanx for replying so quickly. It works fine now
without the .exe,but when i installed the web library on Linux,it gave
some garbage values when we type

I need help with this since the webserver that's been opened up for global
access runs on Linux.Our system admin has set up the configs as mentioned
in the installation document.Thanx in advance :)
