First of all, you don't get an instant reply here, as people only post if they know a solution, which I do in this case.

You need the Android SDK (I recommend installing it to C:\) and your .APK file. You will also need a tiny bit of understanding with Command Prompt.

(If you already have SDK, skip this.)
1. Extract the SDK C:\
2. Go to C:\android-sdk-windows in Windows Explorer.
3. Open the SDK Manager. (Note if you get an error about Java, go install Java from java.com)
4. When the "Choose packages to install" dialog box comes up, keep all the default packages and scroll down and click on the Google USB Driver and choose Accept then click install. Downloading the packages will take a while, so go have a cup of tea or something.
5. Once everything is installed, close SDK manager and then we will move onto the next part.

Go to your phone and turn on USB debugging via Settings>Applications>Development.
Plug in your phone to the pc. It may search for drivers, but it should find them eventually.
Now open Command Prompt and type in:

cd C:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools
adb devices
adb install -s C:\<Path to APK>
(-s will install to SD Card)
You need to replace <Path to APK> with the location of your APK (For example: adb install -s C:\Users\Username\Downloads\nameof.apk)

Hope this helps.

Actually he did NOT try downloading an .APK INSTALLER FROM THE MARKET and if he did that then he would be able to transfer the .APK to his SD Card and install it.

He could also use Astro File Manager
