Package installation from a disk or usb device , any clue?

I have no internet connection on this machine, so I have to download it to a USB stick, copy it to my Linux drive and then try and figure out how to get it installed. I tried to double click on the file, but I only get an archive manager, not anything that will let me install it on the system. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance...
