Re: Hello--Question about setting up a local install server?

Yes you can tell it to install from a specified location or locally.  When 
you run the install you will see the options.  Just run the install on your 
server or whatever box you want the install files to be available 
from.  Then tell the system you want to install it from where to get the 

run through the setup.exe once and you will see what options it has.
