No sure, but did you try calling setup.exe instead of setup64.exe?

Yes, I tried using setup.exe too. It seems that its asking for interactive login to run the exe but how I can pass that through using this code . I mean how to bypass the interactive login

Is the server/share on which the setup.exe is stored a trusted location?
