Note
VMware dropped the ball twice on VMware-converter-all-5.0.0-470252.exe
If you extract the MSI using the %TEMP% folder trick, the extracted MSI will not run unattended or silently.
You can use it to create transforms but /QB or /QN will not work.
If fact MSIEXEC.exe will complain with an MSI error 1639 if you run this:
VMware vCenter Converter Standalone.msi /i /qn

So if you must use a transform you will have to do something like this:
"%~DP0VMware-converter-all-5.0.0-470252.exe" /q /s /w /V"/qn /l*v \"%TEMP%\VMWARE_CONVERTER.LOG\" TRANSFORMS=%~DP0VMWARE_CONVERTER.MST"

Notice I did not use double quotes for the path to the transform. If you add them like this it will fail with 1639:
"%~DP0VMware-converter-all-5.0.0-470252.exe" /q /s /w /V"/qn /l*v \"%TEMP%\VMWARE_CONVERTER.LOG\" TRANSFORMS=\"%~DP0VMWARE_CONVERTER.MST\"



Now for the Good news.
You can configure many things from the commandline.

If you want to install all but the Agent:
Install manually without the agent selected and look in %TEMP%\vmconvservermsi.log for the ADDLOCAL property.

For me this was:
ADDLOCAL=Root,Server,de,fr,ja,Client,RemoteAccess,L10N,CLI,ClientReg,ISO,Main,MiscServer,Packages,ServerReg,zh_CN


If you want to set the HTTP port number, another property exists:
VMCE_HTTP_PORT=80

for HTTPS it's:
VMCE_HTTPS_PORT=443

There's a bunch of these. Here's a sample:
DEFAULTSERVER=localhost
IS_SQLSERVER_AUTHENTICATION=0
IS_SQLSERVER_USERNAME=sa
ISCHECKFORPRODUCTUPDATES=1
ISVROOT_PORT_NO=0
LOGINBOX=false
SHOWLAUNCHPROGRAM=-1
STANDALONE=true
TCP_HOST=localhost
TCP_PORT=443
VMCE_AGENT_PIPE=vmware-converter-agent-soap
VMCE_AGENT_PORT=9089

and remember this trick:
InstallShield setup.exe also allows passing private properties via the command line, too.
