Installling ADODB on an offline computer

I work on an application that uses the ActivePython compilation of 
Python from ActiveState.  It uses three Microsoft COM libraries that are 
needed for talking to SQL Server.  The libraries are:

     Microsoft Activex Data Objects
     Microsoft Activex Data Objects Recordset
     Microsoft ADO Ext

In the past, we have installed those libraries on numerous machines by 
running makepy.py.  It can be done from the ActivePython IDLE GUI, or 
from the command line.  makepy.py downloads and installs the packages 
for us, taking care of COM server or client registration, or whatever it 
is that has to be done (I don't really know much about this stuff.)

Now I've been asked to port the application to a computer that is not 
connected to the Internet.  I haven't found any way to get those 
packages.  I haven't found a way to, for example, download the packages 
to files, place the files on the target computer, and run makepy.py or a 
setup.py to install them.

Can someone suggest a way to do it?

Thank you very much.

     Alan
