You can run the setup with the /SILENT command line switch to run an automated setup. It will be visible to the user, but not ask any questions.

Customised silent setup
If you want to define which options should be chosen during a silent setup, first run it with the following parameter and choose the options you'd like to have:
After completing the setup, you'll find a file default.cfg in the same folder which contains the options you chose. Example:
[Setup] Lang=German Dir=C:\Programme\CDBurnerXP Group=CDBurnerXP NoIcons=0 SetupType=full Components=main,nmsaccess,lang,lang\france,lang\germany Tasks=desktopicon,desktopicon\common,quicklaunchicon,fileassoc,isoassoc
Now you can run the setup with the following paramaters to execute a silent setup with your options:
cdbxp_setup_22.214.171.1240.exe /VERYSILENT /LOADINF=default.cfg
There are plenty of additional switches available.
