If you are at the console, you can manually set the DISPLAY variable:
DISPLAY=`hostname`:0.0
export  DISPLAY
then run the script.
IF you are remote login, you need to make sure your local machine has X server install and it is running on the background.
and set:
DISPLAY="Local-IP":0.0
export DISPLAY
You can also for setup X forwarding for ssh to do the job.

What type of  "permanent solution " do you need?
How often do you need to run the installer.
You can also write a script to set the DISPLAY and run the installer.
eg:
#!/bin/ksh
export DISPLAY=`who am i | awk '{print $6}' | tr -d "()"`:0.0
/path-to/ runInstaller
exit
# End of script
