expression engine install script?

I have a partial backup of a site that was created using VMPro’s expression engine script (IIRC) about three years ago. The site designer then upgraded EE to a paid for version. I’d like to restore some or all of the backup files and thought I’d create a dummy site, install expression engine and move files back manually until I could get at what I wanted. But it looks like expression engine isn’t available as a script, is that right?
