Does this work on underprivileged Windows machines?

1. Download 
http://admb-project.googlecode.com/files/admb-ide-101-win32.zip or 

2. Unzip and copy the three directories (~, admb, gnu) to a thumb drive - 
on my machine the thumb drive is assigned the letter E

3. Copy e:/admb/admb101-gcc452-win32/examples/admb/simple to e:/simple

4. Open a shell and run

set ADMB_HOME=e:/admb/admb101-gcc452-win32
set HOME=e:/~

5. Navigate to e:/simple and type 'runemacs simple.tpl'

6. Click the 'Build' button, wait and then click 'Run'

That's ADMB-IDE on a stick. The IDE installer also tells Windows explorer 
about useful file icons and to open ADMB-IDE related files in Emacs.
