What Windows version are you using:
Please read the following Announcements.viewtopic.php?f=16&t=48331viewtopic.php?f=16&t=32670
Did you install this version to a portable USB device or to your hard drive?
If to the hard drive did you run the setup_xampp.bat file or did you install it without using the bat file, to simulate a USB portable device perhaps?

Read the \xampp\apache\logs\error.log file for 500 errors.
Did you change the first line of your cgi (Perl) scripts. the shebang to point to your perl.exe file in XAMPP?
Change the path to suit your installation

Common Gateway Interface (CGI) Deactivated.
CGI is Activated by default in the version you are using.
Did you test the cgi scripts in \xampplite\cgi-bin folder (there are 3 test scripts) for example:http://localhost/cgi-bin/perltest.cgi
There is only a mini-perl in the lite version.
Unless you absolutely need the lite version then use the full featured version instead.
