I am trying to get a Continuous Integration system working for a Nativescript app to build. Referring to this note on the page, the windows PowerShell script:

start-process -FilePath PowerShell.exe -Verb Runas -Wait -ArgumentList "-NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Command iex ((new-object net.webclient).DownloadString('https://raw.githubusercontent.com/NativeScript/nativescript-cli/production/setup/native-script.ps1'))"

should setup the nativescript environment. However, when I run this as an inline script in a PowerShell build step, the build fails with this output:

I think that means the script only runs if the local machine has a GUI? Which is obviously not the case for remote hosted build servers. If my assumption is correct, is there a way to work around this, or remove the dependancy on a GUI?

Update:

Here is my attempt to remove all of the user interaction from this script, but I still get the same result...

Builds the project for Android and produces an APK that you can manually deploy on device or in the native emulator.
### Options
    * --compileSdk - Sets the Android SDK that will be used to build the project.
    * --release - If set, produces a release build. Otherwise, produces a debug build. When set, you must also specify the --key-store-* options.
    * --key-store-path - Specifies the file path to the keystore file (P12) which you want to use to code sign your APK. You can use the --key-store-* options along with --release to produce a signed release build. You need to specify all --key-store-* options.
    * --key-store-password - Provides the password for the keystore file specified with --key-store-path. You can use the --key-store-* options along with --release to produce a signed release build. You need to specify all --key-store-* options.
    * --key-store-alias - Provides the alias for the keystore file specified with --key-store-path. You can use the --key-store-* options along with --release to produce a signed release build. You need to specify all --key-store-* options.
    * --key-store-alias-password - Provides the password for the alias specified with --key-store-alias-password. You can use the --key-store-* options along with --release to produce a signed release build. You need to specify all --key-store-* options.
    * --static-bindings - This is an experimental feature. If set, generates static bindings from your JavaScript code to corresponding native Android APIs during build. This static bindings speed up app loading.**
    * --copy-to - Specifies the file path where the built .apk will be copied. If it points to a non-existent directory, it will be created. If the specified value is directory, the original file name will be used.
** By default, NativeScript runtime for Android uses runtime binding generator. When you extend a Java class and overwrite a lot of methods, this could be a potentially slow operation.
### Attributes
<API Level> is a valid Android API level. For example: 22, 23.

Note: You can use $(Build.SourcesDirectory) if you want the path relative to repo.

Like Alistair noted the problem is probably caused by this block:

# Self-elevate
$isElevated = ([Security.Principal.WindowsPrincipal] [Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity]::GetCurrent()).IsInRole([Security.Principal.WindowsBuiltInRole]"Administrator")
if (-not $isElevated) {
    start-process -FilePath PowerShell.exe -Verb Runas -Wait -ArgumentList "-NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Command iex ((new-object net.webclient).DownloadString('https://raw.githubusercontent.com/NativeScript/nativescript-cli/production/setup/native-script.ps1'))"
    exit 0
}

And I don't think you will be able to install Chocolatey/Java/Android SDK on the build machine as I doubt you have admin rights on the machine. But from what I see Team Services already supports Android builds so I suspect it already has the Java and Android SDKs installed. Have you tried installing only nativescript via npm install -g nativescript and then trying to build your project?

UPDATE

Put C:NPMModules ns.cmd and "Tool" and then as "Arguments" build android --path $(Build.SourcesDirectory)
