In theory, that should work.  However, I can't say that I recall anyone
ever mentioning it.  Unfortunately, my call for Windows testers went
entirely unanswered.

First thing is to make sure that SWISH\API\API.dll was installed to the
correct Perl library location.  (e.g., c:\perl\lib\SWISH\API\API.dll)

"didn't return any headers" suggests that the program did run but
printed out something other than CGI/HTTP headers.  Possibly an error
message or maybe nothing at all.  Maybe you could run the script from a
command line (perl swish.cgi) and see what happens?
