Cheat sheet for setting up CGI on IIS 7.5

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 10 February 2012]

I recently had to set up CGI with IIS 7.5 on a Win. 7 Pro and a WIN 2008 server. Since the Micro Focus instructions are IIS 5 on Win 2000 server, I thought someone may be able to benefit from my ordeal.
The instructions are rough but here they are:

If this is a new machine, confirm that wrun32.exe is operational from the desk top.

Download and install Microsoft Web Platform Installer.
www.microsoft.com/.../platform.aspx

Run Web Platform Installer and choose IIS 7 Recommended Configuration.

Follow this link for directions to install the CGI module.
www.iis.net/.../cgi

Start IIS and right click the "Default Web Site" in the Connections Panel (right).

Choose "Add Application" from the pop-up menu.

Type cgi-bin or the name of your choosing in the "Alias" field.

Type the path to the folder containing wrun32.exe.

Accept the defaults for "Application pool" and "Pass-through authentication".

Click OK.

Select the new application in the connections panel (right).

Double click the "Handler Mappings" icon in the Home panel (center).

Double click the "CGI-exe" item and an "Edit Script Map" pop-up window will appear.

Type "*.ACU" in the "Request path" field.

Type C:\ACU\wrun32.exe -f "%s" in the "Executable" field.

Click "request Restrictions..." button and a "Request Restrictions" pop-up window will appear.

Accept the defaults on the "Request Restrictions" pop-up window by clicking "OK".

Click "OK" to close the "Edit Script Map" pop-up window.

This will trigger an "Edit Script Map" question asking if you want to allow this ISAPI extension. click "Yes".

At this point you should be good to go.
