      Description

      As discussed by email, I want to be able to install Windows service on slaves using the CLI. At the moment there is no way to get the jenkins-slave.exe and the configuration files as there are remotely access from the master.

      Jenkins needs to provide an URL to get those files so they can be downloaded manually.

          Where does windows-slave-installer jar reside within Jenkins, and how does it relate to the slave/agent/remoting jar files (SHA256 confirms they're the same, why three names for this file?) that can be downloaded from <server>/jnlpJars? Rather than ability to download the exe and config files, I'd prefer that the agent.jar directly support a -install argument which does the same as clicking thru the service install in the JNLP GUI.

          It would be a nice new feature.
          No capacity to work on it anytime soon, but I will be happy to review pull requests
