 Mobile VPN with SSL client silent installation

Information
When I install the Mobile VPN with SSL client on user computers, can I prevent users from seeing message boxes or prompts during the installation? 

You can perform a silent installation of the Mobile VPN with SSL client software on a Windows computer. When you install the Mobile VPN with SSL client on a computer, the network adapter (TAP driver) requires administrator privileges on the local system to install correctly.

To perform a silent installation, run a script on the computer as administrator. Use these command-line options to hide any message boxes or prompts from the user:

[executable filename] /silent /verysilent

If you need to use a specific install location for the application, you can use this option as well:

/dir="c:\directory\path"

If you are prompted to allow the installation of the TAP driver during installation, see Pop-up warning about Windows TAP driver in Mobile VPN with SSL
