    » q, qn ‐ No user interface.
    » qb ‐ Basic user interface
    » qr ‐ Reduced user interface with a modal dialog box displayed at the end of the
    installation.
    » qf ‐ Full user interface with a modal dialog box displayed at the end of the installation.
    » qn+ ‐ No user interface except for a modal dialog box displayed at the end of the
    installation.
    » qb+ ‐    Basic user interface with a modal dialog box displayed at the end of the installation.
    • /a Package  Creates an image, as referred to an administrative image, that is installed on the network.
               Refer to "Unattended End‐User Installation" on page 23.

    • /s Silent Mode
    The command HEAT.exe /s runs the installation in silent mode.  The command HEAT.exe /s also suppresses the HEAT.exe initialization window for a Basic MSI installation program (HEAT installation utilizes InstallShield and MSI technology), but it does not read a response file.

    To run a Basic MSI product silently, run the command line HEAT.exe /s /v"/qn"  (to specify the values of public properties for a silent Basic MSI installation, you can use a command such as  HEAT.exe /s /v"/qn INSTALLDIR=D:\Destination").
         Note: For some newer operating systems, you may need to use /silent.

    • /v Pass arguments to msiexec Used to pass command‐line options and values of public properties through to msiexec.exe
     (a Microsoft program that interprets packages and installs products).
