Not that I know of. That is, you can install anything anywere, but of
course if you wanted the system to take care of it automatically then
of course you'd need to make a .deb.
What's not clear to me in your case is the meaning of the error
message. Usually you get messages that are more meaningful, like
missing library and so on. If it told you "can't run this file" it
would have made a lot more sense...
