This parameter tells the Microsoft Windows Installer to uninstall the product associated with the specified MSI file or product
code. The product-code is created when the Deployment Wizard is run to create the deployment package.
The value of this parameter sets the default path to where the software is to be installed. This option is useful for silent
installs. It is ignored for /uninstall.
The /qn option can be used to perform the operation without user messages. On Windows Vista and later versions of Windows, administrator
privilege is required to install or uninstall software. When the /qn option is used, the automatic request for administrator privilege is suppressed.
The following command performs a silent install of the deployment file to the specified folder and logs the results to a file.
Caution should be exercised with the use of the /qn option since the computer system may shut down and restart without warning.
