pycharm-professional-3.4.1.exe silent install


We use SCCM to deploy our software so I was wondering if anyone knew the switches etc to deploy PyCharm 3.4.1 silently ?
I've tried /S as you would normally do with a NSIS package but no luck.

I'm using Saltstack to deploy software automatically and I've hit a similar problem. The /S switch does work to perform the silent install, mostly.

However, the silent install doesn't perform some ancillary tasks that the GUI install does.

1) No desktop shortcut
2) It does not associate .py files with PyCharm
3) It does not insert a registry entry into HKLM:\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\, which Salt would use to determine that the installation succeeded. More generally, this would allow uninstall using the usual Windows method.

Has anybody else faced this problem? Are there other command line switches that would turn on these features?
