Is there a way to "embed" python libraries that can then be used offline

I have a bit of an odd requirement for a dashboard. I need the dashboard to work when my users are offline, and I have a few python scripts that need to be able to run.

Namely, I am using these libaries:

import json

import clr


from System.Runtime.InteropServices import Marshal


from System.Windows.Forms import MessageBox

from Spotfire.Dxp.Data import *

from Spotfire.Dxp.Application.Visuals import HtmlTextArea

from Spotfire.Dxp.Framework.ApplicationModel import ApplicationThread

I need my user to be able to at least create and email and queue it up to be sent by outlook when they are offline, then outlook can handle the send/recieve when they are back online. The problem of course is that my imports are reliant on you being connected to the internet to import those libraries. I am curious, is there a way in Spotfire, that I can top end import the libraries and save them to the DXP, so that the libraries can be used in my code when the user is offline

EDIT: Perhaps a better question/approach would be, is there a way to use("Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook") from a local reference, so my users can have this installed locally, and then the python script references the local library instead of trying to go to the web

Thanks in advance,
