end

While run this cookbook its prompting manually to install please advice

Need unattended installation

This is really not a Chef problem, and more about the packaging mechanism. You should refer to the vendor for advice. In this case we can see the .exe is simply a self-extracting installer created by Installshield.

Adding /? will show you the options you need for a silent install (looks like /S rather than /Q in your case).

Hope this gets you a little further.
