How to fix the problem

If you have access to the Windows server, go to the Internet Services Manager, select your site, select "Properties", go to the "Home Directory" tab, and check "[x] Execute" (Windows NT 4). On Windows 2000 or XP, its a little different, you need to select "Execute Permissions: [Scripts and Executables]" from the dropdown. You do not need to reboot the computer after making the change, though on older systems it may be necessary to restart the web service.

If you do not have access to the NT server, then you must contact someone who does.
