The pidgin installer can be run in a "silent" mode by using the following syntax:

pidgin-x.y.z.exe /DS=1 /SMS=0 /L=1033 /S /D=C:\Pidgin

The /L flag sets the language (Windows LCID) used by the installer, as well as Pidgin itself. The /D flag, if specified, sets the installation directory; it must be the last parameter used in the command line and must not contain any quotes, even if the path contains spaces. You may omit both the /L and /D flags and use the defaults which are 1033 (English) and %PROGRAMFILES%\Pidgin respectively. The /DS and /SMS flags can be used to enable or disable the Desktop and Start Menu Shortcuts. The same applies to non-gtk versions. If you need to specify the GTK+ install path (Default is %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\GTK\2.0); download the latest GTK+ standalone installer and the no-gtk pidgin package and run the following:

gtk-runtime-x.y.z-rev-a.exe /L=1033 /S /NOUI /D=C:\GTK+
pidgin-x.y.z-no-gtk.exe /L=1033 /S /D=C:\Pidgin

The GTK+ installer has two silent states. One with message boxes: /S, and one without: /S /NOUI. This is because the installer was made to run from within the Pidgin installer, where you would expect to see message boxes for errors.

Note
Pidgin can be used to communicate with Office Communication Servers (OCS) as well with a plugin called sipe.
http://sipe.sourceforge.net/

With Pidgin version 2.7.1, installing the Sipe plugin version 1.10.0 wasn't as easy as adding the provided msi. Two dll's were missing that can be downloaded from the plugin site and copied to %programfiles%\Pidgin.

Example:
REM Remove earlier pidgin versions
"C:\Program Files\Pidgin\pidgin-uninst.exe" /S

REM Remove earlier SIPE-plugin
%systemroot%\system32\msiexec.exe /x {EE2EDB04-2A94-11DE-9BE4-EE4856D89593} /passive

REM Install Pidgin 2.7.1 silent with desktop and start menu icons
\\server\share\path\Pidgin\pidgin-2.7.1-offline.exe /DS=1 /SMS=1 /S

REM Install SIPE-plugin for SIP-support (Office Communication Server OCS)
\\server\share\path\Pidgin\pidgin-sipe-1.10.0.msi

REM Add libraries for the SIPE-plugin
copy \\server\share\path\Pidgin\iconv.dll "C:\Program Files\Pidgin\" /Y
copy \\server\share\path\Pidgin\libxml2.dll "C:\Program Files\Pidgin\" /Y

REM Option to add Pidgin to the autostart menu
REM copy "%AllUsersProfile%\Start Menu\Programs\Pidgin.lnk" "%UserProfile%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup" /Y
