If you want to deploy software to a bunch of computers at once on a network, you need an MSI file. Since the Windows Live apps are more consumer-oriented, the installers are not provided in that form from the app's homepage. However, there is a way to acquire the MSI files you need -  actually, there are two ways:

1. Install the programs on one computer. The MSI files can then be found locally:

    * 32-bit Windows - C:\Program Files\Common Files\WindowsLiveInstaller\MsiSources
    * 64-bit Windows - C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\WindowsLiveInstaller\MsiSources

2. Download the installers directly from the Live Suite SkyDrive folder. In this folder, you can find the following:

     * Windows Live Sign-In Assistant 4.200.520.1: Install_{AFA4E5FD-ED70-4D92-99D0-162FD56DC986}.msi
    * Windows Live Messenger 8.5.1302.1018: Install_{508CE775-4BA4-4748-82DF-FE28DA9F03B0}.msi
    * Windows Live Writer 12.0.1366.1026: Install_{9176251A-4CC1-4DDB-B343-B487195EB397}.msi
    * Windows Live Mail 12.0.1606.1023: Install_{184E7118-0295-43C4-B72C-1D54AA75AAF7}.msi
    * Windows Live Toolbar 03.01.0000.0146: Install_{D5A145FC-D00C-4F1A-9119-EB4D9D659750}.msi
    * Windows Live Photo Gallery 12.0.1308.1023: Install_{257E440F-781F-459B-9A68-A0872B80C1D6}.msi

Before you install Windows Live Photo Gallery you will need to install Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition.
