A silent installation from the vendor is not supported. We are adding Truecrypt 7.1a to the Package Feed Module launching later today (August 13th) but the help provided on this particular application will be limited to download, uninstall and detection details because the vendor does not support a silent installation. Even when repackaged with AdminStudio, the deployment community is reporting this one is a particular challenge. See this thread on my old ITNinja site

I'm not sure about desktop shortcut and restore point options and how such might be supported by the vendor installer (typically such would be the job of a wrapper script using something like PSADT, which is integrated as a feature of AdminStudio). 

It does appear to offer a portable mode that requires no installation so a custom installation script looks like the right approach at a glance. Will look into it further and come back with findings here.

FYI, we did add Truecrypt (and VeraCrypt) to the Package Feed Module (you can look it up in the filterable list here) but unfortunately the vendor does not provide silent command line options.
