The console window for pip that appears during setup prevents us from having a truly silent install.

This patch uses the CAQuietExec task from WiX, extracted and checked in directly (the binary blob is omitted from the patch), to run the pip install/uninstall.

It also makes the task non-vital, which will prevent uninstall from failing when pip cannot be removed.

An almost immediate update - this patch also makes COMPILEALL not pop up a window.
