Install Windows agent without GUI

I would like to install the opsview windows agent from the command line, without a GUI. I've tried variations of msiexec, but I can't seem to find any documentation regarding the parameters we can pass in. Does there exist any documentation on installing this way? If not, what is the recommended approach?

Thanks.
