Using EntLib without installing it

I was wondering whether anyone could help me. I am thinking about using EntLib for an application (to be deployed as a web application) on the machine where I will not be able to install any software.

Is it possible toj just deploy the necessary/relevant EntLib dll files to the webserver, or does the EntLib have to be installed on that machine using the setup program?

Thank you for any help.

The only thing we really need the installer for is the stuff integrated into Visual Studio - the integrated config tool and the docs. All the DLL's are xcopy-deployable. Just grab the ones you need, drop them in your bin directory, and you're set.

Great news. It solves my problem, as I can happily carry on using EL for my proof of concept without worrying it won't stop working when I start deploying it to very restrictive production servers.

Thank you very much for your help.
