With 2000, there were 2 for your app, one for the runtime.
The setup.exe for the runtime allows for the /? parameter. There is no way
to do a quiet install for your app using a PDW generated installer. Command
line options for MSI packages can be found at

If you want to do a quiet install, you should look at other installer
options, i.e., Installer2Go, Wise, InstallShield.
