Tell my boss and/or IT head to setup a machine for that and give me some
time to learn how it all works.

Press the "build" button and you're done. KISS. No complicated build

Right, and you can write automated tests in no time? I've worked in a QA
department and seen how many problems there are writing automated
software tests. Plus the tools are really expensive. The good ones.
We've tested the cheaper/free ones and they were not functional/useful.

Should, true. But you won't do that if your client doesn't pay you and
you're already short of development time.
