1. How to create an answer file.
Here is a great article about it, it is not exactly the same application but the mechanism is the same:

2. How to launch silent install with the response file and the log file.
setup.exe /f /i en /l %TEMP%\DB2DevInstall.Log /m /u "%pathToRSP%PROD_ADCL.rsp"

3. How to enable the application for standard users.
You need to configure R/W permissions to the "C:\Program Files\IBM\SQLLIB" folder, and Full control permissions to the HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC registry key. Use SetACL, VBS or whatever you prefer.

4. How to disable automatic updates.
Remove the following shortcut:
"C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\IBM DB2\Information\Check For DB2 Updates.lnk"
Delete or rename the following file:
"C:\Program Files\IBM\SQLLIB\CFG\INSTALL\db2updateutil.exe"

5. How to disable the "IBM DB2 First Steps Launchpad" window which shows up when you log on after application install:

"C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\IBM DB2\Set-up Tools\First Steps.lnk"

6. How to silently import the .prf configuration file with the ODBC and database configuration.
- Use Configuration Assistant to manually configure what you need, later export it to a .prf file.
- Use the db2cfimp tool to silently import the .prf file after the application installation:
"C:\Program Files\IBM\SQLLIB\BIN\db2cfimp.exe" "%pathToPRF%name.prf"
