Thank you very much. That is kind of what I was looking for. But I
will definitely consider the alternative suggested methods as
well. One last thing on this method, can a ensure that a specific
version number is being installed (i.e. not the latest one). I
consider testing the latest on one machine, then I want the same stuff
on the others (without surprises introduced in later versions).
If you want the same versions as you've installed on another machine, you'll
need to point 'setup.exe' to your local package directory and install using
that rather than from a mirror.
