The Automox installer requires your account access key in order for the device to appear in your console for management. To deploy deploy the Automox MSI installer without parameters, you must embed the access key into the file. 

The simplest way to do this is with Microsoft MSI editor Orca. Normally, you need to download the Windows Installer SDK to get the installer for this, but it can be downloaded from here:

Orca.Msi

Notably, there are many other MSI editing tools, but this one is free and from Microsoft so we'll use this for the following example.

Editing the MSI with Orca

To edit the MSI file with Orca, follow these steps.

1.  Install and launch Orca.
2. Click File > Open...
    The MSI file is loaded into the editor.
3. Retrieve your access key from the Automox console.
      a. Sign into the Automox console.
      b. Go to Settings > API and copy from the Access Key field.
4. In the Orca editor, click Property from the Tables list.
5. To add the access key you copied, double-click the first empty cell in the Property         column to add a new entry.

6. In the Property field, type "ACCESSKEY" and press Enter. This is case-sensitive.           The field will change from Property to Value.
7. In the Value field, paste the access key and click OK. You'll now see a new row with      your new property and value entries.

8. Confirm that your access key is correct.
9. Save the file (Click File > Save).
    Now you can deploy this modified MSI without being prompted for a key. 

This applies to both Silent and GUI-based installations.
