silent install of security banner via msiexec command

BACKGROUND: I am able to SUCESSFULLY install a security banner program via it's GUI which allows me to manually choose configuration settings (background color, leading text, trailing text, etc). HOWEVER, I am in the process of building a custom windows 10 image that includes the security banner program. The intent is to deploy the security banner program as a SILENT install with the custom Windows 10 image in my automated environment.

THE PROBLEM: By default, the silent install of the security banner program automatically selects the configuration settings (background color, leading text, trailing text, etc.). Instead, I would like to specify the configuration settings I want displayed in the silent install command. In my automated environment, I'm using the following silent install command:

msiexec.exe /i "C:\Example.msi" /qn

THE QUESTION: How do I add specific configuration settings in my silent install command for msiexec? In my research of the msiexec command, it mentions specifying public properties and provides one example. My testing of that example has not worked for me. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong????

No, you have to deploy the registry SEPERATELY (with your own preferred method), AFTE.R the MSI is successfully installed.

The developer of that MSI file should provide you with the info and the options available. Experts here can't just guess how to configure an unknown MSI file.

The developer should give you some of these options:

-use MSI flags: ex msiexec.exe /I "C:\Install.msi" /QN OPTION1=A PREF2="abcd"
-use MSI tranform files (need third part software to do this, ex Orca): msiexec.exe /i C:\installer.msi TRANSFORMS="mytransformfile.mst" /qn
-use config files after install: ex. copy preferences to c:\users\abc\appdata\roaming\program\
-use registry: ex adjust HKCU\Software\Program\preference1="abc"

As you see, my examples included OPTION1, and PREF2, but in all 4 cases, these options/value pairs ARE ONLY KNOWN to the developer. That's why your example didn't work, you probably  took it from another application.

Thanks for the comment. If I go the registry route and I have the banner.msi executable and a registry file with the appropriate registry entries I want in the file, how would I tie them both together on a command line?
