For quite some apps, you can unpack the installer data manually, copy the
app out and run it directly. There's usually at least one of 4 ways to get
the app out of the installer:

1. unzip it, might even work on .exe's
2. run the installer. It might create a temp directory with e.g. the .cab
files in it, or already the completely unpacked app. Copy your app out
while the installer is still displaying it's error msg.
3. unpack the cab with unshield (see synce.sf.net)
4. unpack the cab with cabextract (see synce.sf.net's link)

You might sometimes need a combination of the above...
