Silent Install...

I am having an issue using the documented silent install arguments. I am have tried all variations of switches and paths with no success. After the install I get a broken desktop shortcut with no install, and when you try to un-install it is broken until you manually install it.
(AppDir is pointing to our server)
"%AppDir%\Medixant\RadiAnt DICOM Viewer 1.1.8\radiantsetup1184646.exe" /S /LICENSE="%AppDir%\Medixant\RadiAnt DICOM Viewer 1.1.8\Help\Key\license.radiantlic"

"%AppDir%\Medixant\RadiAnt DICOM Viewer 1.1.8\radiantsetup1184646.exe" /S /D="C:\Program Files\RadiAnt Viewer" /LICENSE="%AppDir%\Medixant\RadiAnt DICOM Viewer 1.1.8\Help\Key\license.radiantlic"

"%AppDir%\Medixant\RadiAnt DICOM Viewer 1.1.8\radiantsetup1184646.exe" /S /D="%PROGRAMFILES%\RadiAnt Viewer" /LICENSE="%WinDir%\System32\license.radiantlic"

"%AppDir%\Medixant\RadiAnt DICOM Viewer 1.1.8\radiantsetup1184646.exe" /S /D="C:\Program Files\RadiAnt Viewer" /LICENSE="C:\Windows\System32\license.radiantlic"

What gives, am I doing something wrong?

Never mind, I was able to get a reply from support:
It looks like there is an error introduced to the silent installation mode somewhere between RadiAnt 0.50 and the current version. Actually we had only one client that needed silent setup functionality then, and nobody reported any issues ever since. We will try to repair it as soon as possible.

Ok, so in the end we found out that the problem lies in the order of the parameters and usage of quotes.

The correct syntax is:

radiantsetup.exe /S /LICENSE="license path goes here" /D=destination folder path goes here

1) /D parameter must be the last one
2) no quotes should be used in destination folder path (even if it contains spaces)
3) the license key file path must be surrounded by quotes
