Yeah, PAR (my earlier suggestion) won't work either because you
wouldn't be able to bundle Apache either.

Maybe your best bet would be to create a small footprint VirtualBox
(https://www.virtualbox.org/) using a light-weight Linux distro. That
is, create a small Linux distribution (e.g. Debian) without X11 or
anything. Just the basic OS, and the LAMP layers. It will _easily_ fit
on a single CD and the you can just copy the contents of the CD to any
Windows station and runs run the VM. You could also create the VM
using Windows but it may be larger than the size of a CD.
