On a Windows machine, I think Unikey is the way to go.  You don't need
to install it, it's a stand alone exe, so no need to have admin
privileges.  It's a great system-wide IME for VIQR (and other
Vietnamese keyboard input methods).  I believe there is a way to
toggle to English dialogue boxes.  On top of this, you could use it as
a text expander.
