Unfortunately I don't.

I have both.  I have a copy of them in winnt\system32 and along side the

  The registry entry reads as follows:

  Yes, it does work.  Prints just as the program says, from the command
prompt and from Netscape.  But when I run tiny-fcgi_nt.fcgi it invokes
cgi-fcgi.exe (shows in Task Manager), and then just sits there.  I don't

never reuses the old version.
