I have windows 7 running, but I have the machine inside a domain, with Active Directory. I need to install likewise in a virtual machine running linux (Ubuntu), but unless I connect the VM to internet, I can't installed it using the apt-get command, so I need to download all the sources with Windows and then install them on the VM, in that way, I can log the VM into Active Directory and then, I'll have internet... how can I do this?

did you try downloading the .deb files? –  don.joey Dec 27 '12 at 22:23
@Private there is a lot of dependencies, for that I can't do it manually... –  AbrahamSustaita Dec 27 '12 at 22:31
I assume your host does have an internet connection and your VM doesn't because you use bridge-mode and the MAC address of your VM isn't allowed onto the network before it's authenticated against the AD. Set up a small proxy (HTTP) server and configure APT to use that proxy. Alternatively, use NAT-networking to "share" the internet connection with the host. –  gertvdijk Dec 27 '12 at 23:29
