Microsoft Access Runtime supports a silent switch /quiet but stills shows an EULA dialog box using which disables running an unattended installation.

What's needed to silent install Microsoft Access is this:

  • Extract the files from the Access Runtime setup (e.g. AccessRuntime_X64.exe) using /extract c:\windows\temp
  • Create a config.xml manually:
<Configuration Product="AccessRT">
    <Display Level="None" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />
    <Logging Type="standard" Path="C:\Windows\Temp\" Template="Microsoft_Access_2013_Runtime_Setup(*).log" />
    <COMPANYNAME Value="Company Name" />
    <Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="Never" />
</Configuration>
  • Run the extracted c:\windows\temp\setup.exe with this switch: /config config.xml
