You need to obtain Personal Web Server from the microsoft site and install it.

You then obtain the WinPerl program and install that. Both these steps are very straight forward.

The only difficult problem is that a change to the registry is often needed.

  Run regedit and look for the following entry.

  My
  Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\W3Svc\Parameters\Script
  map

  you need an entry for .pl with the value
  "c\perl\bin\perl.exe %s %s" (or equivalent path)

  The main point being the two %s value (although only one can work)

  You also need to ensure that the directory running the scripts is set up to be executable using the
  administration page of PWS

I don't think that PWS is all that large?

There is another way but not so useful.

Run your perl scripts with

perl yourscript.pl >test.html

You can then load the test.html file using the 'file' option of your browser. It does not work for script requiring input, only for those creating output.
