I have built a private intranet using perl and have upgrading the site to IIS 7.5 on Windows Server 2008 R2. I have a section that prints tags formatted with win32 Printer. I have gone through all the steps to get perl to work.
I was able to get this working with Server 2003. I basically had to create a user for perl to use in the group IIS_WPG so that perl would print to a local printer. I can print to the printer using a test script called from the command prompt but called from a browser you get this
HTTP Error 502.2 - Bad Gateway The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers. The headers it did return are "ERROR: Cannot create printer object! þÿÿÿ8w4w at testprinter.pl line 4 ". Detailed Error Information Module CgiModule Notification ExecuteRequestHandler Handler perl script map Error Code 0x00000009 Requested URL testprinter.pl Physical Path testprinter.pl Logon Method Anonymous Logon User Anonymous
The test script that I am using is
#!perl use Win32::Printer; my $dc = new Win32::Printer( printer => 'emtags', height => 214, width => 288, printer => 'emtags', unit => 'pt' ); my $font = $dc->Font('Arial Bold', 24); $dc->Font($font); $dc->Color(0, 0, 255); $dc->Write("Hello, Mars!", 50, 50); $dc->End(); $dc->Close(); exit 0;
Thanks very much for your help with this.
