I use parameters like this to install Cygwin. You may have to specify any packages and the site you're going to use. https://www.cygwin.com/faq/faq.html#faq.setup.cli has a list of relevant arguments for the setup exe. You can even pre-download all the components and have the whole thing completely offline.
--arch x86 --download --no-shortcuts --only-site <DOWNLOAD HOST> --packages <PACKAGE LIST> --quiet-mode --root `<PATH TO ROOT>
--no-admin might prevent a UAC prompt, although you could use psexec to install as system to avoid that.
