What I mean is this.

Write an ordinary CGI program - not using CTlib or anything fancy - that just tries to open a file and report how many bytes the file contains.  Or if it fails to open the file it reports why (using $!).

First of all do it with some file that you know exists and is definitely readable, like C:\windows\win.ini or whatever.  That will tell you your script is working.

Then try changing the filename to the one that is failing.  What happens now?

That will let you see whether Apache, and CGI scripts it is running, can read that file.
