Yes.. What you need to do, is share the file (the program that you want to install) on your machine... then download it to their machine, via remote desktop.

If firewalls block this, and you can't disable them; then as long as you can both access the internet, just upload the file to a server, and then redownload it..

But I don't think that there's a built in functionality that allows you to share the files..... just improvise  :)
