    Some one probably has a better solution than this because I am sure they are out there. You can run HTC sync and there is an option for application installer. Follow the prompts and you should have it done. Like I said there are probably better third party software out there but this will do the trick.

    You can hook your phone to the computer with the USB cable and choose "Disk Drive" at the prompt to make your SD card show up on your computer as a disk, then copy the .apk files to the SD card.

    From there, I'm pretty sure Astro File Manager ( ) can install .apk files from the SD card.

    One hint to make things easier in the future, while you have the phone hooked to the computer, rename your "drives" so it's obvious which one is which. For example, name them "INTERNAL" and "SD CARD".

    another easy way is just send them by email to your phone and open each apk , if you arent sure about how to work the usb cord and card and astro
    Not sure how many you have but sometimes emailing one or too is easier

    True emailing to phone is the easiest way, might not be the quickest but till you learn phone better for sure easiest is to do email way.

    Make sure in your settings in applications you have unknown sources check to be able to install non market applications.
