how can I copy an application(ndiswrapper) to another computer?

I have a Ubuntu box and a damn small linux laptop,I have installed ndiswrapper on Ubuntu by using apt-get.And I wanna install ndiswrapper on my laptop too,but it doesn't have a network adapter(so it can't connect to the internet).

Then I copied /usr/sbin/ndiswrapper and /etc/ndiswrapper to my laptop,when I ran ndiswrapper on my laptop,following error message appeared:
Can not find a version of ndiswrapper.

What should I do(or how can I run ndiswrapper on my laptop)?

Thanks in advance(sorry,my english is poor)

Get NDISwrapper downloaded to the networked computer and copy to a media that can be moved to the machine, i.e; USBFlash, CD/DVD. Then use the file to install NDISwrapper.
