Executing perl from Coldfusion 10

I manage an application using CF9 on a Solaris server.  We're trying upgrade to CF10 but some of our perl scripts have stopped executing command line tasks.

Example from perl script:

     system("/apps/commonApps/distiller/Distiller/distill -compat 1.3 /apps/upload/sdg325453.ps");

The permissions for the distiller allow anyone to execute it.  I can execute this command directly or execute the perl script directly with no issue.  It's just when the perl is called from coldfusion that I have a problem.  I can't find any errors being recorded.  Does anyone here have thoughts on why this is happening?

Found the answer.  The account running the coldfusion changed between 9 and 10.  The new account needed access to a hidden directory (.AcrobatDistiller) and an update to a few perl config files.
