Is there a way by which you can automate an install from command line?

For example, like installing iTunes only using command line.

Yes =)

For most installers, typing installer.exe /passive or installer.exe /silent will run the installer in unattended mode, which requires no user input or interaction.

If running the installer with an option like /? or /h (/help) does not list any options, it is usually possible to identify the installer software in the GUI it spawns and research which command line arguments that installer-binary will accept.
