My thanks to Denis, Zdeněk, Lars, Siep, Reinhard and to all who have
offered advice regarding this. I did find the documentation for
"install-tl-windows.bat -gui tex" fairly easily on the TUG-hosted
TeX-Live page :


but I left a second GUI-initiated administrator install running while I
was out at table-tennis and found when I got home that it had completed

So, problem over for this year.
