Is it possible to run report magic, not in cgi-mode via a browser, like
iwth an exec command so that I could customize the file out location? I
only used the CGI because I could not figure out a way to run report
magic through php's exec (which I believe is by design as well).
Ideally I would have full control of report magic as I do in the command
line, via a web interface. Is this possible? and how if so?

It's in the source archive inside the distribution. You'll need to
unzip to get to it.
My problem is that I can run report magic as a CGI by pointing to
rmagic.exe not rmagic.pl in the form action for rmform.html,
If you want to use the Perl version, then you should download the
source and make sure Perl is installed on your system.
but I cannot File_out. Essentially I would like to save all these
reports that I am producing, but I cannot even save one right now. I
have tried hard coding the file_out in the ini file, but this seems
to get overridden by the executable as well as using a <input
type="hidden" name="File_Out" Value="[directory]"> parameter in a
variety of ways but with no success. How can I save these reports??
This is by design. If this were allowed anyone could start changing
the File_Out parameter (which, correctly would be reports_File_Out in
the form elements) and overwrite files on your system or fill up your
hard drive. When running in CGI environment, Report Magic will only
write reports to STDOUT (which web servers redirect to the browser).
