I have provided two sample batch files for silently installing QuickBooks 2008. In order to determine the variable names and values for a QuickBooks 2008 installation I used Microsoft’s Orca tool which comes with the Windows SDK Components for Windows Installer Developers kit. The first batch file called install.zip installs QuickBooks 2008 on the local machine. You will have to edit this file to provide your own License and Products numbers for the installation. The second file is called deploy.exe and it uses psexec.exe to deploy the application to a remote machine on your network. If you want to do remote deployments, you will have to edit this file to provide your own network credentials.
