WIX: How to run Command Line silently

WIX provides a Custom Action that allows to run Command line silently - Quiet Execution Custom Action

You should use it exactly the same way as listed in the WIX example. Just put your command in the Properties value.

<Property Id="QtExecCmdLine" Value='"command" parameters'/><CustomAction Id="QtExecExample" BinaryKey="WixCA" DllEntry="CAQuietExec" Execute="immediate" Return="check"/>

Make sure the command has double quotes. For example: '"ping" -n 15'

Don't forget to add the WixUtilExtension extension during building the msi package.
