Assuming your http://localhost:8085/fcgi-bin/wms.exe?SERVICE=WMS&REQUEST=GetCapabilities&VERSION=1.1.1 link is working, then this is likely to be a cross-domain issue:

This is a diferent question, because i'm using MapSever, in this example the answer is about GeoServer. –  Michel Andrade Jul 3 '11 at 14:04
It's the same problem. You can't load data from a different URL or port number in a browser. You need a proxy, or run on the same port. –  geographika Jul 3 '11 at 14:55
OK! In my example using this address: localhost:8085/fcgi-bin/wms.exe How can i define this proxy? Some thing like that? I do not have a file named "proxy.cgi". OpenLayers.ProxyHost = "/fcgi-bin/proxy.cgi?url="; –  Michel Andrade Jul 3 '11 at 15:00
I take a look at proxy.cgi configuration, but i'm work with Windows and Apache, so in this way, i'll need to configure and install python!? –  Michel Andrade Jul 3 '11 at 15:09
