There isn't a logs folder. What I am really asking is how do I start the script running, and after that we will worry about error logs.

I think Perl is installed correctly. I am a total newbie, this is the 1st script I've tried to run.

Well the script isn't running for a reason. IF you get check the error logs it will tell you why the script is failing, if you correct the problem everything will work ok.

go to C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\logs\error.log

You may need additional perl modules intsalled. If so this will tell you

No, no it's not that the script doesn't run it's I don't know what to do to even initialise Perl!

Ah I see.

You can right click the file and select open with - perl command line interpreter.

or you can open a command prompt and type "C:\perl\bin\perl C:\script.pl" and that will run the script.
