RTM to build servers

If the 1.0 RTW release is available only as part of the VS 2013 Update 2 RC, how can we install only the compiler to our build servers? Is there (or will be) a separate MSI available? Our sysadmins are not mastering node, so npm is not an option for us on the build servers.

Thanks,

You can use this on a build server to get just the TypeScript tools installed: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=34790 It's recommended that you still have the latest version of IE on those machines for the best performance.

Thanks, Dan, I'll try that.

The name of the package is a bit misleading, but now I see that the Install Instructions sections says, that "TypeScript for Visual Studio 2012 will install when Visual Studio 2012 is not installed, and provide the TypeScript compiler."

Agreed, it should definitely be clearer what it's for which would probably also make it more likely to turn up in search results for this scenario.
