I think this is called English language immersion. One way to learn a foreign language is to be forced to use only the language you are trying to learn. In such an instance, you speak and listen to a language until you are able to converse fluently.

I have heard such a construction before.

Therefore, the sentence in question implies the existence of an installer, although it does not state it directly.
