You could always install the AutoItX dll and block input...

$oAutoIt = CreateObject("AutoItX.Control")
if $oAutoIt=0
? "AutoItX not registered."
; Do your install here...

also running a hidden kix window with that exe/bat is not so far a way.

only problem what comes to interrupting, user can logoff.

but then, that's their problem, is it?

I have found that with ISS "Silent" installs, SHELL will not wait for the install to finish. Even using Start /W hasn't worked.

See this thread.

I am using ISS silent installs and for me 'START /MIN /WAIT' does work.
