The HTML request header contains additional data like HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE which is not parsed by CGICC. Please add all those lines to

std::string fAcceptLanguageString;
} // namespace cgicc

cgicc::CgiEnvironment::readEnvironmentVariables(CgiInput *input)
fAcceptLanguageString = input->getenv("HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE");

// Win32 bug fix by Peter Goedtkindt
std::string https = input->getenv("HTTPS");
if(stringsAreEqual(https, "on"))
fUsingHTTPS = true;
fUsingHTTPS = false;
