Silent installation

PureRef uses NSIS on Windows which means the installer supports the /S switch to make it silent.

On macOS the PureRef.app can be manually extracted from the .dmg using hdiutil.

The .deb and .rpm packages should also support silent install on Linux.

Make sure you have read and agreed to the license agreement before installing silently.
