      <Path>"%INSTALLDIR%Python27\Scripts\cloudbase-init.exe" --config-file "%CLOUDBASEINITCONFFOLDER%cloudbase-init-unattend.conf"</Path>


With a script that will hide the window, e.g.:

<Path>PowerShell.exe -windowstyle hidden "%INSTALLDIR%Python27\Scripts\cloudbase-init.exe" --config-file "%CLOUDBASEINITCONFFOLDER%cloudbase-init-unattend.conf"</Path>
