I am trying to open an excel application and open a excel file locally on the windows server, using perl module win32::OLE on my web page, running on Apache. I understand when apache serves the webpage, it runs it as system which has privileges on the local server to access all files. However, I am getting the error, "unable to access the file" when I run the script via the webpage. The script works when run on command line as a .pl file.

Appreciate the help.
