You don't need a .pkg file nor do you have to use -net|ssc install- to install them.  
After downloading the .ado and .hlp files for -tryem- (from
 you can copy/paste those files into a folder in your ado path.   Type -sysdir- to see where your ado-files are kept (you may want to put it in your  ".../ado/plus/t/" folder since that's where -ssc install- would put it if you weren't behind a firewall)

There is a reason why the web pages describing these modules suggest that Windows users will probably not be able to do what he suggests. A firewalled environment will almost surely prevent you from downloading .hlp files for security reasons, as it will consider them Windows malware. (Many correspondents on this list cannot even emall a .hlp file to me without it being stripped from the message by their firewall unless they use some subterfuge). What I would recommend is to download the materials to a computer outside the firewall, take note of their location (which tryem will tell you after install) and then move the files to the equivalent directory on the other computer using a USB key.
