Problem with fastcgi execution on window server

I am in the process of migrating a PHP website to our windows server. There is an import file that needs to be ran once a week and it takes a while. Right now, I'm getting this error.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Parallels\Plesk\Additional\PleskPHP5\php-cgi.exe - The FastCGI process exceeded configured request timeout

I increased execution timeout in the ini file, but that didn't help. From what I've read, I need to increase the FAST CGI execution timeout, but I do not know where to do this. This server uses plesk to run it's php, so the files are defaulted. I read there should be a file in %windir%\system32\inetsrv\ called fcgiext.ini, but I cannot find that file. Does anyone know what I need to do on this server to increase fast cgi execution timeout for this website? Windows Server 2008 R2 Plesk 9.5 PHP 5

There should be %windir%\system32\inetsrv\fcgiext.ini - perhaps do a search for that filename in all of your drive... it must be hiding somewhere

Yea, I did an entire search of the c drive for fcgiext and couldn't find it. I did figure this out though. Clicking on the server in IIS there's a fast cgi icon. Editing the timeout on that fixed my issue.
