This following is an example of how to install with UI prompt and save installation logs into the example.log.

 .msiexec /i KalturaClassroom_0.0.1.msi /L*V "example.log"  

The following example shows how to install without UI prompt (You will need elevated administator rights):

. msiexec /i KalturaClassroom_0.0.1.msi /L*V "example.log"   /qn

KalturaClassroom_0.0.1.msi /L*V "example.log"   /qn KALTURA_RECORDINGS_DIR="z:\lectures\"  ADDLOCAL=CaptureAppFeature

Since the msi installs services and application for all users you need to run the msi in administrator and elevated privileges
