When in doubt, ask nicely.

I forgot that sometimes (not always) vendors will be nice enough to code their installer .exe files to have a /? switch that will sometimes (not always) simply tell you how to install them silently. So next time you’re trying to automate the install of some random setup.exe file if you’re in doubt of how to do an unattended or silent install, just ask nicely with the /? switch.
