I want to install one GUI application without user intercation. The installation will ask some inputs from the installer while installing. So I want to automate it completely.

Please keep in mind that we're not mind readers. This would be like going to an auto garage and saying "I want to make my car better. How can I make my car better?" - It's incomplete and doesn't have any detail. You need to help us help you. –  MDMarra Jan 29 '13 at 15:27

Almost all software can be installed silently. If it's an MSI file, then it has be be able to be installed silently, per the spec (though some vendors do dumb things that make this not actually work).

If you're working with an MSI file, just do msiexec /i <path to the file> /qb! if you want no user interaction, but you want a progress bar to show. If you want it completely silent, replace /qb! with /q.

If you're working with software that isn't installed from an MSI, then you need to read the manual for it. It will tell you if a silent installation is possible.
