As far as installer is concerned, the basic idea was:

 * If there is a directory called "archive", the (compressed) files in
   this directory are installed.

 * If there is a texmf tree, then the installer assumes that a live
   system is present and files are copied.

 * If neither a directory "archive" nor a directory "texmf" exists,
   the installer assumes that there is no TeX Live in the current
   working directory and installs from the network instead.

No black magic involved.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
