No CGI files?

I'm very confused.

I just bought this script about an hour ago. There are no cgi files anywhere in the package.

cpadmin.pl, a perl file, which can not be opened with a browser, thus, I'm stuck at step 8 of the installation guide and rather frustrated. I tried renaming the file as .cgi, that didn't work either.

What on earth am I suppose to do now?

Funny how the second you admit defeat, you find the answer. I needed to change the permissions to enable execute. It would have been nice to have that little bit of info in the installation guide. Just a suggestion.

You may want to download the Unix version.  The Windows version is for Windows-based servers (which are relatively rare), and thus has .pl files.  The Unix version contains .cgi files, which is standard at most web hosts.
