Still UI when using commandline /s /w /v" /qn

When installing VMware vSphere Client 5.0, I used the commandline /s /w /v" /qn but I still see the extracting window. Is there a way to hide is completely?

Answer Summary:
Extract the MSI as it supports all standard command lines. If you want to use the executable installer, you may use /qr (reduced interface) but not /qn (no interface).

you could try extracting the MSI from the installer and using that directly.

Most EXE installers which call out to an MSI do not tolerate any white space between the switch '/V' and the passed parameter(s). Thus, you might find that it works like this:
   /s /w /v"/qn"

The exe does support reduced UI option (/qr) and not the /qn option.
