    There some advanced installer IDE that have the functionality todo this or your might want to try cheap method using zip self extract with some parameter instead of having user to type the command line manually.

    This is a sample using 7zip,

    You might want to consider  to exclude interface that need user intervention such EULA, features selection and location to install.
