Just like normal commandline

setup.exe -s 

will take setup.iss if exits in setup folder 

Setup.iss = default name taken by default

As per some of the other gracious respondents:

InstallShield Installer will generate a setup.iss file with the -r switch
You must go through the setup wizard and make your choices regarding the install folder, desktop shortcuts, etc.

MyInstaller.exe -r 
The 'setup.iss' file will show up in 'C:\Windows' 

To run the installer silently after creating the setup.iss file: 

MyInstaller.exe /S /v"/qn" /f1"c:\windows\setup.iss" /f2"c:\windows\mylogfile.log"
