This might NOT be your problem, but Apache on Windoze really DOES
respect the #! line at the top of CGI scripts. The message you get
when that points to a Unix path instead of a DOS path seems like
sort of what you're reporting. I get:
>>>No such file or directory: couldn't spawn child process: 

I have some CGI scripts that use this line on my Unix server:
  #!/usr/bin/perl -Tw

and I have to switch them to this line for my Windoze sandbox:
  #!D:\software\perl\bin\perl.exe -Tw

Does that help?
