Command line parameter support for installers

Suggestion for PortableApps: allow the install/update program for all apps to take three (3) optional command line parameters:
- a "Wait for User Input" switch defaulted to Yes
- the path to the parent directory of the program defaulted to null
- an alternative Destination Folder for the install/update currently already defaulted
The path parameter would be prepended to the default or command line value of the Destination Folder textbox on the Choose Install Location page of the Installer. Together these will allow me to automate updating PortableApps to not require user input and place them anywhere on a system.

Another command line parameter suggestion: "Create Desktop Shortcut" defaulted to No
