The sourceforge page explain how to create a silent instaler here

You will need first to extract the MSI package from the EXE file for your language. Last distribution files are available at SourceForge

To extrac the MSI use a zip tool like 7-Zip or from command line with :

OdfConverter.exe /I Filename [/O PathOrFilename] [/V]

This script is for a french install with office 2003, you have to adapt it for your system language. You particulary need to change :

This script install the Add-In only if :

  • The 2007 Compatibility Pack is already installed
  • The .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack SP1 or SP2 is present (tested on Windows XP only)
  • Microsoft Office 2003 is installed on the target computer

You may change this checks by packages dependencies. If you use, MS Office 2007 you do not need for the Compatibility Pack of course.
