I've tried researching this a time or two, only to come up nearly empty. It is possible to install ActiveState Perl on Windoze, and then there is a Windoze version of MySQL that is truly a pain to setup (at least, when you've never done it before, and I would venture even for some others), BUT...can it all be installed and executable via a CD?
Basically, I have put a ton of time into developing an online website that essentially amounts to a searchable database on existing material (read-only DB). It is incredibly useful to people via the web, but I would like to extend its usability to the Windows desktop via a CD-ROM. Ideally, it could run from the CD solely, but optionally, something from the CD could be installed in a very user-friendly way for the rest to work (i.e. this should be useful to the average non-geek).
Any ideas? Anyone here ever tried to do a similar thing? It seems this wheel must have been invented before...and if not, it's high time, no?
