i tried to install the validator on my computer, but i got i problem,
which i could not solve.

When i check one side i get the following message:
Configured SGML Parser '' not executable! at
D:/Tools/perl/lib/CGI/Carp.pm line 314.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at
D:/Tools/validator/httpd/cgi-bin/check line 192.

What does this mean?

I installed:
- D:\Tools\sgml-lib
- D:\Tools\OpenSP
- D:\Tools\validator
- D:\Tools\apache (is working)
- D:\Tools\perl (is working, i tested it)

I looked in the line "192" of the file "check" at
"D:/Tools/validator/httpd/cgi-bin/". The line "192" is the end of the
"BEGIN block". This mean that there must be a error before:

In the line "100-105" stands:"

# Read Config Files.
$CFG = &read_cfg($ENV{W3C_VALIDATOR_CFG} ||
if (! -x $CFG->{'SGML Parser'}) {
die("Configured SGML Parser '$CFG->{'SGML Parser'}' not executable!");
So I looked in the "validator.conf", wheter there is a mistake. The file
ist configured in this way:"
# Main Configuration File for the W3C Markup Validation Service.
# $Id: validator.conf,v 2004/05/18 03:41:19 link Exp $
# Basic Key/Value pairs, separated by TABs.
# Blank lines and lines beginning with "#" are ignored.
# The file:// URLs aren't really URLs; it's just convenient shorthand.
#      * Document format in /docs instead of here.
#      * Ditch this format for a sane one; probably using Config::General.
