If that's the case you'll have the same problem getting Emacs for MS
Windows installed.  Then you'll have the same problem installing each of
the support programs (e.g. diff, grep, etc).

But, if you can install VNC then that's the only program you need.  Then you
can use all of the tools on *nix side that are already there.  Would
your IT department be more favourable to allowing you to install half a dozen 
programs, or only one?

Also, do you have to ask your IT department before installing anything?  Or,
do you have to ask before using a program with an proper installer?

The latter scheme is quite common.  In that case you shouldn't have any
trouble.  Emacs, the GNUWin32 tools, Eli's windows ports and RealVNC all
install without the use of an installer.
