After a long research i could solve the problem in installing and configuring MYSQL 5.0 silently !!!

1. Install MYSQL using Prerequisite 

2. Create a batch file with command line for running the configuration wizard

"%MySQLServerPath%\MySQLInstanceConfig.exe" -i -q ServerType=DEVELOPER ConnectionUsage=DSS Port=3306 StrictMode=yes Charset=utf8 DatabaseType=MIXED ServiceName=MySQL RootPassword=password

3. For dynamically search for existing MYSQL folder, add below steps before the command line (Point 2)

if "%ProgramFiles(x86)%" == "" (
set "MySQLServerPath=%ProgramFiles%\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin"
) else (
set "MySQLServerPath=%ProgramFiles(x86)%\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin"
