Cannot install Erlang 20.x on Windows Nano Server

      Description

      I tried building a Nano Server Docker image but OTP 20.x Windows 64-bit binary installers run without installing

      I think this is due to requirements not present on Nano Server like:

      • msiexec
      • Visual C++ redistributable (vc_redist.x64.exe but which version?)

      I looked at the Erlang NSIS creation script and it seems that the installer simply unpacks binaries and then sets a lot of registry keys
      If you provide a ZIP binary version with a BAT or PS1 script to set the same registry keys installation will be a lot easier when no UI is available

      This will also enable the creation of a RabbitMQ Windows Nano Server Docker image
