You can use the msiexec utility to install or uninstall silently.

The command line to perform a silent install is as follows: msiexec /i <Installer.msi> /qn
For example:  msiexec /i Colligo_x86.msi /qn

To perform a silent uninstall, the command line is as follows:  msiexec /x <Installer.msi> /qn

The recommended best practice is to supply the license key on the command line as follows: msiexec /i Colligo_x86.msi /qn LICENSE_KEY=<licensekey>

Alternatively, if you are performing a silent installation, you can edit the .msi to embed the license key in the installer. This is described in the Administrator Guide for each product.
