Sure. Target the path(s) with a batch file. Have single lines for each installer. 

I would use the pushd command to temporarily map a drive for each path you need to use. The popd at the end to remove the mapping.

Here's an example of one I played with a while back to deploy both Flash and Java from network drives

=============================================================================================
pushd \\server\folder

msiexec.exe /i install_flash_player_18_active_x.msi /qn

taskkill /F /IM iexplorer.exe
taskkill /F /IM iexplore.exe
taskkill /F /IM firefox.exe
taskkill /F /IM chrome.exe
taskkill /F /IM javaw.exe
taskkill /F /IM jqs.exe
taskkill /F /IM jusched.exe

WMIC product where "Name LIKE '%%java%%'" call uninstall /nointeractive

taskkill /F /IM iexplorer.exe
taskkill /F /IM iexplore.exe
taskkill /F /IM firefox.exe
taskkill /F /IM chrome.exe
taskkill /F /IM javaw.exe
taskkill /F /IM jqs.exe
taskkill /F /IM jusched.exe

msiexec /i "\\server\folder\jre1.8.0_45.msi" INSTALL_SILENT=1 STATIC=0 AUTO_UPDATE=0 WEB_JAVA=1 WEB_ANALYTICS=0 EULA=0 REBOOT=0 NOSTARTMENU=1 SPONSORS=0 /qn

exit

popd
