Creating a NoMachine light version that doesn't require installation

This implementation will allow NoMachine to be deployed as a portable application which won't require users to install it.

It would be useful in remote support scenarios where users are without administrative priviledges on their machines. For example, users could download the package, run it and give credentials to the support technician to allow access to the machine.

This portable version of NoMachine is rather a collection of all programs and libraries necessary for connecting the remote desktop. Users can save it for example on a USB stick, plug it into a computer and have NoMachine immediately ready without the need to download and install the software on that computer.

This means that this portable version doesn't install any of the following: entries in the system menu or registry key, resident services in the system tray, NoMachine drivers and so on. Without drivers, however, some services such as USB forwarding will be not available. Only those services that don't require drivers can be supported, for example audio and copy&paste functionalities.
