Install azure cli using Powershell – silent mode

Az cli is a very important tool that one devops engineer may need to install on systems. You can perform a silent install on a windows machine using the powershell below:

$msiFilePath = "azure-cli.msi"
Invoke-WebRequest https://aka.ms/installazurecliwindows -OutFile $msiFilePath
             
$MSIArguments = @(
    "/i"
    ('"{0}"' -f $msiFilePath)
    "/qn"
    "/norestart"
)               
Start-Process "msiexec.exe" -ArgumentList $MSIArguments -Wait -NoNewWindow
Remove-Item -Path $msiFilePath  -Force

By running the powershell the download procedure will begin.

When the installation finishes you can locate it under installed programs:
