I don't know about the previous post, but we've done it sucessfully here by just installing the drivers. I had to actually install the Desktop manager to get them, but I was able to copy just the driver files to another computer and use them for charging. We have it on our standard desktop build now so that any computer can charge a device, even though we don't install the DM.
