Silent install of Oracle 10g on Windows 7 returns error

I'm trying to setup an automated install of the Oracle 10g client for Windows 7.  I can install it interactively just fine, but when I try a silent install with a response file, I get four pop-ups, each with the associated event below.  If I click on OK for each pop-up, the install continues on and finishes, but I don't know if the install is good at this point.  

Has anyone ever found a way to do a silent install of Oracle 10g to a Windows 7 workstation?

So following the same advice referenced in three of the four links above works.  That is, using a standard response file and adding parameters for my install directory.  I have one issue left, specific to SCCM.  

The Oracle installer is kicked off as a separate program, so my original batch file closes when the install has actually just gotten started.  Is there any way to get my batch file to stick around until the Oracle client install has completed?  I don't think I can make this work in a task sequence unless I can make sure the task completes before moving on to the next task.  I'm concerned the install will get interrupted before it finishes.

I guess I could use AutoIT and rig the install to not be 100% silent so there's a dialog box to clear at the end, but I was hoping to not introduce another layer into the install since the -response option does just what I need.

btw, I tried "start /w" in my batch file and my initial command prompt window still closes shortly after kicking off the installer.

AutoIT  ... not much handy with it but can be helpful on your scenario..

Solved my initial problem, so now Oracle will install properly unattended.  Still cannot submit as part of a task sequence in SCCM, but that's another issue entirely now.
