To answer the question of handling CMD arguments...
Here is a simple version:
@echo off
if [%1]==[/x] echo msiexec.exe /x
if [%1]==[/silent] echo msiexec.exe /silent
if [%1]==[] echo Missing argument
pause

Open in new window



If the file is named: RunMSI.bat, then:

RunMSI.bat /silent
RunMSI.bat /x

Open in new window
