Sawtooth Software: The Survey Software of Choice

SSI Web uses scripts written in the Perl programming language to run web-based surveys. A Perl interpreter must be installed on your web server for SSI Web surveys to work correctly.

Active State provides a free version of their ActivePerl interpreter at http://www.activestate.com/activeperl/downloads.

When installing ActivePerl, we recommend accepting all of the defaults.

Make sure the following options are checked:

Perl should be added to the PATH environment variable, a Perl file extension association should be made, and the IIS script mapping for *.pl should be created.

Although instructions have been provided for ActivePerl, SSI Web can utilize any available Perl interpreter. Please consult your System Administrator to make sure a Perl interpreter is available.
