I have a .exe to update client resources and then launch the game .exe file. Coz the standard windows .msi and .msp files need user communication when running, how to run the downloaded install file and patch file without any UI?

It is never a good idea to update game resources without user interaction. end-users(esp. technical savvy ones) hate it when a program does things like that to their system without their notice.

It's a good idea to write a simple patcher yourself, which reads the installed game directory and then patches the files and shows a progress in how far it is. This can be easily done in VB.NET.
