 PerlMagick with ActivePerl (perlis.dll) on NT4 / IIS4 wont load Magick.dll for

I cant get any PerlMagick perl script (.plx) to run on NT4 with
IIS4 web server via the ActiveState 522 Perl installation
perlis.dll ISAPI extension when entered from a URL
entered into a web browser.

I have been able to get non-PerlMagick scripts to run, and
also have been successful with scripts run from the comand line
(with .pl extension) - i.e. under the control of perl.exe

When I try and run a .plx script (under perlis.dll) from a browser
(http://webserver/websitename/makeimage/testscript.plx) the
browser displays:

'F:\InetPub\wwwroot2\websitename\makeimage\testscript.plx' script produced
no output

and the web-server error log (PerlIS-Err.log) shows:

*** 'F:\InetPub\wwwroot2\websitename\makeimage\testscript.plx' error message
at: 2000/01/07 15:05:50
Can't load 'F:/Perl/site/lib/auto/Image/Magick/Magick.dll' for module
Image::Magick: 126 at F:/Perl/lib/ line 169.

at F:\InetPub\wwwroot2\websitename\makeimage\testscript.plx line 8
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at
F:\InetPub\wwwroot2\websitename\makeimage\testscript.plx line 8.

( testscript.plx line 8 is: use Image::Magick; )

I have:
1. Installed ActiveState perl 522 to F:/Perl
2. Installed ImageMagic 5.1.0 for nt, built the VC++ 6.0 project binaries
3. Copied and renamed the delegates nt file in c:\imagemagick
4. Added the imagemagick\isualmagick\bin directory to the path
5. Created a makefile for perlmagick:  perl Makefile.PS
6. run the makefile under nmake: nmake
7. installed perlmagick: nmake install
8. run the tests: nmake test, with results (summary):

NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'E:\Perl\bin\perl.exe' : return code '0xff'

PLEASE CAN SOMEONE HELP - I've spent a week
trying to get this to work now, without success. I dont like to give up,
but I'm running out of ideas. I've tried many variations
of the above, and tried uninstaling and reinstalling everything several
I've also tried version 4.2.9 of the full ImageMagick / Perlmagick
but that fails ALL 32 t/write tests and doesn't work with perlis.dll,

I note also that after installing PerlMagick, as above, a PPM query does
not report a PerlMagick package as present. However, there is an
Image-Magick perl package available on ActiveState's website (at version
4.2.9, though) - do I need this ?? I've tried the above both with and
without this package present and it doesn't seem to fix the problem.

Many thanks,

Steve Taylor
