Play DIVX files on work laptop?

Hello
I am trying to find a way to play my DIVX movie files on my work laptop whilst travelling. I am not allowed to download any software or codecs to the laptop and WMP, Real & Quicktime will only play the sound on these files and not the picture. Is there any way I can put these files on a recordable DVD and still play them on my work laptop, without going through a labourious conversion process? For example, is it possible to add the required codecs to the DVD and have one of the aforementioned programs run it without messing with any of my laptop settings?

Thanks in anticipation.

They play in my windows media player.
Are you allowed to install updates?
Do you have the most up to date version?

click here plays almost everything.

VLC is a stand lone player will run from a memory stick or copy to the hard drive of the works laptop does not install any files in the registry and no movie history is recorded on the laptop.
