I am trying to install my subset  "smalltex" on Windows 10 via a  ssh
Almost a success, but I need  a "windows gui" environment to unpack the
 -- so it would be nice to have  an option "unpackonly=<folder>" or just
make available an

I am using the following smalltex.bat:

@echo off

tlmgr install %pkg%

rem  Keep no backups (not required, simply makes cache bigger)
tlmgr option -- autobackup 0

rem  Update the TL install but add nothing new
tlmgr update --self --all --no-auto-install

The smalltex.profile uses the scheme-infraonly, and the idea it to keep all
under a  folder
(at the moment tex-2021-08-16-1629134177-441963500 )

install-tl-windows -portable -no-gui -profile=smalltex.profile
fails (see install-tl.log) so I have to call it.
After that, tlmgr runs fine until the end.
