Write a batch file which runs setup.exe using its command line options
to point to your repository, select the additional packages, and run
silently. I did this with success using a full mirror hosted internally
at the company for which I work. You should be able to do something
similar using your local repository; however, a full repository is nice
to have too. :-)
