Probably this one:

As a platform I'd probably go with Catalyst and the standalone server and 
avoid a separate web server. It's most likely responsive enough for a 
single user. Or s/Catalyst/$your_fave_framework/.

For packaging and easy deployment:
PAR   <-- good, on CPAN
PerlApp   <-- good, part of ActiveState's PDK
perl2exe   <-- haven't tried this, but hear it's good

If you build the exe as a GUI app, there won't be a console window when you 
launch the app which may be nice and/or confusing  :)

For installation:
http://www.jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php   <-- my favourite
