The following script can be used to download and install a file using Windows PowerShell. Replace example.exe with the actual path and file name. The last line in this script uses the /verysilent switch to prevent the installer from appearing.
Write-Host " `n Please Wait . . .file is being downloaded. This should take about 1 minute. `n " $Temp = "C:\Temp" $webclient = New-Object System.Net.WebClient $url = "https:/path/to/example.exe" $file = "$Temp\example.exe" $webclient.DownloadFile($url,$file) Write-Host " `n Download complete. File will now be installed. `n " start file.exe /verysilent Write-Host " `n Install complete. Go to your list of programs to start the installed file. `n "
