Deploying MSI through Group Policy question

What happens if I just package an MSI and deploy it, will the install wizard appear on the computers that I deploy them to? Do I have to make a transform file?

It's just a simple software I want installed and i have the MSI for it. But I'm not sure if the install wizard is going to appear on the end-users desktop.

The install wizard does not appear, the installation runs at startup.

So how does it know which settings to choose? The wizard does about 3 questions (e.g. do you want to associate this program with pdf files). It's eCopy desktop is the program.

Something like Adobe Reader or Foxit Reader or even Java do not need transforms and will just install with default settings. It will happen at computer startup, where it says "loading computer settings" it will also say "installing such and such software package"
