IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

if the program (.exe) requires user interaction, there is no way you can skip that through batch file.

You should take a look at the exe file if there are any command line options wich will make a silent install possible.
try to run the exe file from dosprompt with /? just behind it.
like:
program.exe /?
and see if there are any posibilities of running it silently, if there aren't any, I guess you're out of luck.
