How do you set up IWP forms input when running Microsoft IIS as the web server?

The ability to use a cgi script like inotes (the forms input helper for Internet Web Publisher) is dependent on an NT registry variable "CreateProcessAsUser". The solution is to manually add it with a value of 0

Caution: Manually editing the registry is potentially dangerous, and giving the CreateProcessAsUser variable a value of 0 is likewise a security risk according to the IWP documentation.

1) From the WINNT35\System32\ directory, run the REGEDT32.EXE program
2) Select the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE window and trace the following path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\W3SVC\Parameters
3) With the Parameters Folder highlighted, select "Edit" from the menu and then select "Add Value" which should bring up the following dialogue box. Fill in Value Name with "CreateProcessAsUser", select REG_DWORD as the Data Type, and set the value to 0.
