It's needed during installation

It also downloads and installs a number of un-packaged items if they aren't already installed.
I'll try to remember them
- Application request routing v3 (one day this download was offline from Microsoft so the installer was broken that day!)
- Java - currently Java 8 update 111
- IIS url rewrite module 2
- Microsoft External Cache
I think if you install those things first the FMS installer will skip over requesting them from the internet.
It possibly also requires
- Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 redistributable (not sure about that one)
