I'm not sure what you mean.

a Puppy .pup file is just a zip file. Puppy is set up so that if you click a file with the extension .pup, it will automatically unzip the file and run the installer program inside ... if the .pup file was created properly, it will do what the creator of the .pup file intended it to do.

There is no guarantee that the package will work properly, or that it will work properly with every version of Puppy, or that the package will not need other programs or libraries to be installed (dependencies).
