You will want to repost your question in forums designated for version 10.5. Express Edition does not support InstallScript, hence, no InstallScript MSI project type.

if you want to install an MSI silent with minimum user interaction and only progress bar than you can use following command line..

MSIEXEC /i <MSI file name with path> /qb

This will show only progress bar during installation.

InstallScript MSI setups require running through setup.exe by default. Without some modifications to the MSI file (I don't remember the exact details), evoking msiexec.exe with the MSI file with the quiet mode switch will run into installation runtime error. I believe there is a KB article on how to do that, if swapna wants to do a search at Support (http://support.installshield.com/).
