Swish-e (v1.3.1)

I've been using Swish for over a year sucessfully under Solaris on a
Sparcstation. I've now tried the Win32 swish-e engine for PC,  I've
already got ActivePerl installed (v5.15) and I installed the perl
scripts that run with swish.

The swish engine is indexing the site fine (it's IIS4 on Win NT4 server)
and I can query it under DOS using command line strings as I could under
Unix, however every time I try to use the perl scripts I don't get
anything back, the script is running OK and I can see that It's reaching
the (open, swish....) line in the script, but it doesn't appear to be
properly reading or interpreting any data from the file.

Has anyone had similar problems. Can you provide me with a solution?
