It all depends really on whether the setup msi supports a quiet install (no user intervention).

If so, open notepad and type the full location to the EXE or MSI package followed by any of the command line options:

See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa372024.aspx

E.G. C:\Software\Setup.msi /quiet

Remember in DOS you will have to place quotes around the command if there are any spaces within the path.
