We have run into issues deploying on an Azure VM, because the installation is an EXE, which requires user interaction to install.  Could an installation be created that allows the x64 .NET 4.5 build to run silently via the command line only?  We have tried manually putting the assemblies from the install on the server, but it seems to want the installation to run for it to work.

Per the downloads page, installing the managed assemblies into the GAC is not recommended (unless the VS design-time components are required, which they should not be on a server system). The recommended means of server deployment is also described on the download page (i.e. pure app-local).
