So you are running pretty much the same scripts on hundreds of machines - surely you keep those in some sort of central repository - never mind. Anyway, I think you are in a world of pain, copying binaries around across machines and I am sorry you cannot change anything, install anything etc but I cannot help you any further under those limitations.
