msiexec /a mysql-instllation.msi

This command will create a directory in the root of %SYSTEMDRIVE% and extract all of the individual products. This took me some time to fins out. From there you can silently install individual products with msiexec.

For instance:

msiexec /i mysql-workbench-gpl-5.2.37-win32.msi /quiet /log log-wk.txt

What a pain. This isn’t really documented anywhere.
