if you explicitly want to use setup.exe, i hope below command will work for you..

start /wait setup.exe /W /S /v"/qn ALLUSERS=1"

Easiest way to install in silent mode is to use the switches for MSIexec, deploy by GPO

msiexec /i “FlexNet Inventory Agent.msi” /qn

 

you can find various deployment options in the manual
https://docs.flexera.com/FlexNetManagerSuite2019R2/EN/WebHelp/PDF%20Documents/On-Prem/GatheringFlexN...

 

You must also make sure that you uncomment the following line in the MGSSETUP.INI file be removing the semi-colon.

;POLICYARGS = -o InstallDefaultSchedule=True -o UILevel=Quiet -o PostponeUserInteractionLevel=Quiet -o PostponeByDefault=False

See the following post for discussion on a more advanced (ie. more powerful, but more complicated) approach to automatic  agent deployment/configuration: FNMS Inventory Agent Deployment
