I'm trying to deploy .net reflector silently with no user interaction to several computers. Does anyone have some documentation to which command switches are supported or is deploying this unrealistic.

Same kind of deal. DotNetDeveloperBundle.exe /IAgreeToTheEula RG_LICENSE=xxx-xxx-xxxx-xxx
If you want to deploy the individual MSIs it's a bit more complicated as you have to extract them from the exe using the extract argument, put all the files on the deployment share, and make transforms to set the IAGREETOTHEEULA and RG_LICENSE properties.
The reason we do not publish this is because it's subject to change (in fact by the time you read this it probably will have changed AGAIN :-) ) and the automatic activation through proxies can sometimes fail with no way of troubleshooting it. Basically if you are deploying through the system account and you have a proxy, you have to make sure the proxy properties are set up for that account in Internet Options and that the proxy accepts the credentials. I don't know how you would possibly do that -- maybe using Group Policy or something.
So I would recommend testing this to death before you make any promises whatsoever to the management!

Silent deploy is no problem. Just copy the contents of the zip file to your chosen target directory on the users' machine - I would suggest you do this as part of a logon script, since you'll need to activate as that user - then have your script execute the following command to activate Reflector:
Similarly, to deactivate:
Hope that answers your question.

I should have been a bit more specific i'm looking to install the whole .net developer bundle silently. Normally I would just run the exe with a /silent or /qn (DotNETDeveloperBundle.exe /qn) in a bat script or something like that. Do you know what command switches the bundle supports?
