I install SQL Server 2008 as part of my visual studio install's prerequisite.
The parameters that I passed in the package.xml file is eg:
Arguments='/q /hideconsole /action=Install ...... /TCPENABLED=1 /SAPWD="MyPassword" /SECURITYMODE=SQL

But when you open the log file during the install you are able to see the parameters (including the database's password)

Any idea how I can hide this?
