The only console mode that we have is fully automated (i.e., it is a
replay of a previous installation).

For this I suggest to wrap the installer using either our very own
native launcher, or the great Launch4J and JSmooth projects.

I'm not sure to understand your question here... I believe that this
is more or less what the current automated (headless) mode does.
