Just use the zip file instead of the installer. Unzip it wherever you 
want. You can do all the stuff the installer does (setting environment 
variables, installing a windows service and adding icons) manually or 
from a script.

At the very least you'll need to set the JAVA_HOME variable. You can use 
service.bat to install a windows service or simply use startup.bat.
