There is a requirement by the extensions installer that SharePoint is installed. It determines that by looking up the following key:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftShared ToolsWeb Server

Extensions12.0]

"SharePoint"="Installed"

By inserting the above entry you can now install the extensions on a client machine without SharePoint actually installed. I hope you don’t expect it to work 100% though.
