    Note my corrections to your post above, in red. You must capitalise the word "I" every time you write it. "Setup" is a noun. You needed the verb "set up". We put software on a computer. The phrase is "at home", not "in home".

    I'm not sure why you want to convert your question into the past tense. If you are asking someone how to do something, it's usually because you want to do it now or in the future.

    I suppose you could say "How could I have set up that software on my computer while I was at home?" but it seems a somewhat redundant question.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
