Is there a way to pass the licence key to the installer from the command line or a text file?

I am trying to script the install so I can automatically shutdown AV services, stop / start the print spooler and if possible perform a silent install or at least auto populate the licence key field.
Is this possible?

No. Why?
I said why in my question. the key field is poorly implemented as I can't even cut and paste the whole key.
when I have multiple servers on which to install it just adds extra time unnecessarily

Why are you installing the same key on multiple servers?
where did I say that? Multiple servers on which to install reckon, not the key.
I want to know if the key can be passed via command line.
f it can I can easily script it.
It is much easier to paste keys into a text file as like I mentioned, the separate fields to enter the key prevent it being pasted in one go.
If it can't be done or you don't know the answer, don't worry about it I will look at a different method.
Thanks anyway.
