Please look in the server error.log file when ever you receive a server 500 error as it will inform you of the reasons.
.\xampp\apache\logs\error.log

This forum search may help with ioncube.

The system cannot find the path specified.
Make sure the first line (shebang) in your cgi scripts refer to where you have perl installed - the path to the perl.exe binary file.

For example if you have perl installed in the default xampp tree then the shebang would look like this:
#!"C:\xampp\perl\bin\perl.exe"
(Your path to perl may be different depending where you installed perl).

This must be the very first line in every cgi script you want to run.

You would edit the cgi script file with your text editor.
