Describe the problem

The Windows updater currently just re-runs the installer at update time, which gets the job done, but the UX could be better if it was more hands-off.

Describe the solution you'd like

The MSI installers support a few flags to make the installation less interactive. There's a fully silent mode where it shows nothing onscreen, and a passive mode where it only shows a progress bar. Chatting with Fabian in Discord it seems like the "passive" mode might be a good middle ground - an automatic installation, but with some feedback so the user knows what's going on.

Alternatives considered

No response

Additional context

I'd be happy to take a stab at implementing it - just grepping around for msiexec I see it's referenced in core/tauri/src/updater/ and also tauri/tooling/bundler/src/bundle/windows/templates/update-task.xml. I think this would only require changing the /qb+ to /passive in those two spots.

Really good idea, I don't like how agressive the update process is with the installer popping up all the time.
