I just unzip the tigris win32 zip file into a directory on my USB drive and
it works from all Windows machines I've tried.

You'd be better off just unzipping it on the PC where your WC is and adding
that to your path: it would be faster than the USB, and you wouldn't need to
have the USB there. I do that on work machines - where I can't install
software either.
