The Chimera installer is created using InnoSetup 5.2.3.  The 
documentation for command line arguments may be found at 

I've managed to install Chimera remotely using the command

   chimera-1.2540-win32.exe /verysilent /log=chimera.log

It took about two minutes to do the installation.  I was logged in via 
Cygwin ssh and running bash, so you'll probably have to make some

I have downloaded the necessary Windows installation materials, but I cannot find any documentation about command line parameters for the installation process itself, and the installation executable does not appear to be one of the usual suspects that I'm familiar with.  Specifically, I'm looking for a way to do unattended, silent installation from a batch file.
