Can an installation be automated through enterprise deployment tools or logon scripts?

Yes it can. All you need to do is include either the /SILENT or /VERYSILENT command line parameters to the steup.exe file (setup.exe can be downloaded from www.novacore.com.au/cms/install/setup.exe )
When Setup is silent the wizard and the background window are not displayed but the installation progress window is. When a setup is very silent this installation progress window is not displayed.

This next step is not essential but will simplify things for the end users. Have your script make 2 string type registry entries to define the database server and path:
On a 32bit OS the key is: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NovaCore\CMS]
On a 64bit OS the key is: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\NovaCore\CMS]
An example being:
"last_db_server"="server1"
"last_db_file"=" C:\Program Files (x86)\NovaCore\CMS\CMS2.fdb"
