I can assure you the wiki IIS / Catalyst page is not out of date as I
personally updated it just before Christmas!
Were you definitely looking at the following URL?
Please check that URL and let me know what part you are personally experiencing
problems with and I will do my best to assist you.
I have a fully functioning Catalyst 5.9 set up under ActiveState's Active Perl
5.18 on a Windows Server 2008 R2 using IIS7.
I have also installed on a Windows 7 machine for local devel no problems (well
ok there were, but I got it sorted!)

Subject: [Catalyst] Windows Deployment
I'm trying to deploy a simple Catalyst application for internal users, so I
don't need anything fancy load balancing or proxy servers etc.
Server: Windows 2003 server 32 bit
Dev Client: Windows 7 64 bit
Perl: 5.14.12 32 bit
I've had a look at the deployment page on the Catalyst Wiki, which gives a good
indication of what sould work (though I think some of it may be out of date).
Each option I try leads to a roadblock, so I start down a new path with the
My no doubt misguided impressions are, Nginx/Lighttpd have limited win support,
Acache is difficult and so not recommended and IIS needs Apache and FastCGI and
is therefore doubly complex.
What I'd like is somebody to tell me what they have working on windows, or even
better what the best/least painful solution is?
If appropriate I'll then update/extend the wiki.
