Avoid sign-up form in silent install

I'm creating a silent/unattended install of MySQL, using the following syntax:

msiexec /i mysql-4.1.7-essential-win.msi INSTALLDIR=c:\mysql /qb

This works great (it displays a progressbar, but does not require any user input).
However, at the end it displays a MySQL.com account sign-up form. Is there a msiexec
paramter I can set to avoid this dialogue from showing up, but still keep the progressbar when
installing.

regards
Stein

Hi, I just read the mysql forum. It avoids the signup, but removes the progressbars. Is there any way to remove the signup, butkeep the progressbar?
