installing a program with powershell.


I am trying to install a software using powershell. When I use start-process for .exe file, it starts installation wizard.
once it starts, there are 2-3 check boxes I need to check on during the installation. Is there anyway I can give default values for these check boxes or skip these steps during installation so that whole installation process can be done by one-click?
I am currently using the following command
PS C:\> start-process -filepath C:\MyProgram\install.exe -verb runas

Usually there is an msi file do you have one? This usually allows you to do silent installs and set the options with switches.

No sir.

I have only .exe file. What other options do I have without msi file?
