FastPictureViewer and the FastPictureViewer Codec Pack are delivered as a Windows Installer (MSI) databases. All options offered by msiexec, the installer client runtime present on all Windows installations, can be thus be used including silent install. Just use the /quiet (or /qn) switch:

Code: Select all
msiexec /quiet /i FastPictureViewer64.msi

For mostly silent (progress only) installation use the /passive option:

Code: Select all
msiexec /passive /i FastPictureViewer64.msi

For minimal user interface (progress and Cancel button only) use the /qb option:

Code: Select all
msiexec /qb /i FastPictureViewer64.msi

Check this page (on MSDN) to learn more about msiexec command-line options. As a side note, the FastPictureViewer packages and updates can also be deployed unattended and remotely through most (all?) systems management services.
