I've deployed MapPoint 2011 to some users. It requires pre-requisites and the main app in this order, so maybe you could script it to all happen at once:
1: Access Database Engine
2: .NET Framework
dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe /q /norestart /log "\\Share\MapPoint\Logs\%computername%_dotnetlog.htm"
3: MapPoint 2011
4: Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package
vcredist_x86.exe /q /log "\\Share\MapPoint\Logs\%computername%_VCRedist_Log.htm"
This has worked fine for me.
I still have to shadow the end-user post deployment and RunAs the MapPoint application as an Administrator, in order for it to activate. Then restart the application under the user and it's good to go.
I couldn't find any commands for pre or post install activations (I tried the Office vbscript activation but doesn't work for MapPoint).
