Note
The downloadable file from the Microsoft website (WindowsInstaller-KB884016-v2-x86.exe in my case) can be packed in and called from an .MSI for a silent install. This is possible in a machine and in a user context.

Machine context:
Create a new .msi project (I'm using Wise)
Put the WindowsInstaller-KB884016-v2-x86.exe file in the files page.
Go to MSI Script -> Execute deferred
Click on InstallFinalize (the last line)
Click Execute program from Installed files
Select the WindowsInstaller-KB884016-v2-x86.exe file.
Fill in on the Command line arguments line:
/quiet /norestart
Go to the properties tab and select:
In-Script options: Deferred execution - system context.
Processing: Synchronous, ignore exit code.
OK

User context:
Same as machine context, except you will need an advertised shortcut. I did this by adding a text file which says something like "the installation completed successfully", and linking an advertised shortcut to that file.

You can also call it from the Group Policy Startup scripts line, adding the appropriate switches to the parameters box.
