Note
ZOLL Code Review v3.41 is software to access, view, annotate, maintain, and print resuscitation incident data that has been recorded on Zoll defibrillators. The data (my case) is stored on PCMCIA memory cards but other means are also possible (like Bluetooth?) (http://www.zolldata.com/)

Pre-requisites: .NET 1.1

Issues:
The package is a single InstallShield EXE that contains 2 MSIs. The "Code 341.msi" cannot be made unattended/silent by using ISSETUPDRIVEN=1 property. You cannot feed it a property for the CD Key because the MSI is used as a wrapper for yet another hidden InstallShield Setup.Exe (You can't even see files or registry entries in the MSI!). The kicker is that it installs the "InstallShield update service" (aka InstallShield Update Manager.)

Solution:
Step 0- Extract the MSIs from the code341.exe using the temp folder method.

*Step 1-pre-populate the registry with the CD Key:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Pinpoint Technologies, Inc.\ZDC]
"License"="######-######-######-######"

*step 2-create CMD file in the same folder as the MSIs with the following:
"%~DP0ISScript1050.Msi" /qb /l*v "%TEMP%\ISScript1050.Msi.log"

"%~DP0Code 341.msi" ISSETUPDRIVEN=1 MODE=SILENTMODE /qb /l*v "%TEMP%\Code 341.msi.log"

The Key thing is the MODE=SILENTMODE property
BTW: The %~DP0 is an environment variable that works only inside CMD batch files. It contains the current path to the CMD batch file's folder.

The Caveat: None of the shortcuts get created. Must copy them from a machine that ran the regular manual installation. Therefore:
Step 4- Copy the shortcuts to the target machine

Also, upon uninstall these shortcuts do not get removed (yet another cleanup to do)
