I need to be able to silently download and install Windows Genuine Advantage. Where can I download it and What is the command line for silent installation?

I am surprised it's so hard to find this information. I need to install Microsoft Software that requires genuine Advantage to be installed.


I am not sure it is really all that hard. Just typing "wga" as the search keyword in the Microsoft Download Center site search would have sufficed to find this link:


The silent / unattended installation procedure is largely uniform for all hotfixes - just use the /quiet /passive /norestart parameter set for the extracted version of the hotfix setup.
