Developers can activate and suspend automatic clicking of the security dialogs programmatically.
You will see files like iupd, idata , ischedlocal , iconn etc etc. Edit/Open file iconn (using wordpad) and locate the string Allow Local Config = 0 and using Ctrl H find Allow Local Config = 0 strings in the file and replace them with Allow Local Config = 1.

Turns out their instructions for manually creating a standalone installer are ridiculously confusing. But I finally got it to work after about the sixth time...
