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.
