    Hello

    i need to install windows .NET using an exe (NDP472-KB4054530-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU)

    would the correct arguments to suppress all prompts be Arguments       = "/passive"

     

    thanks

    No, MSI, exe, is provide by those installers not by PS. So, you have to use their switches in the argumentlist of an install either directly or using Start-Process SomeCommandExe – ArgumentList ListNeeded. Most msi, exe have a /? switch that will show all options.

    Other example:

    Start-Process -FilePath "C:\temp\dotnetfx45_full_x86_x64.exe" -ArgumentList "/q /norestart" -Wait
