Program install script

I am looking for a way to set up a script or something that i can run and install certain programs. I frequently get computers in my office that need certain programs installed or removed. I would like to make this automated where i can just run a program and it does the rest. Is this possible?  Its Windows 7 64bit.

Unfortunately it's not as simple as just writing a script that will apply to all software, different pieces of software install in different ways.

You need to find out if and how the program can be installed from the command line. You can sometimes find this by running the setup file with a /? switch to find all the silent installation switches. You then need to put the silent installation command into a bat file or similar.

You would then just need to run the bat file and the software will install.

As an aside it's not always possible for software to be installed in a silent fashion as certain software requires answers to questions during installation (such as product keys etc).
