<snip>
The self-extractor cannot accept command line arguments directly. Set the environment variable WI_COMMAND_LINE equal to the command line you wish to use, and *then* invoke the self-extractor with no arguments. When using this option, use the \ character to escape spaces within arguments. If the \ character is needed to express a directory path, use \\ instead. For example:

C:\>set WI_COMMAND_LINE=-q -noasc -g c:\\wi\\logfile -c "WIDest=1:/Citrix/MetaFrame,Config=Local,XMLService=mfpsrv01:80;mfpsrv02:80,WIDefaultSite=Yes"
C:\>WebInterface.exe

<\snip>

Turns out that for version 5.2 this is ALL wrong!
You CAN use the command line and this WI_COMMAND_LINE environment variable is completely ignored!

To get the REAL command line options for WebInterfaceSetup.exe v5.2 just run:
C:\> WebInterfaceSetup.exe -h




You could also in theory, extract the MSI and its related files and bypass the whole extraction layer. to extract only:
C:\> WebInterfaceSetup.exe -unpack C:\mypath\
