If you want to automate installing a bunch of PBIs, you can do this a 
lot easier :)

Just make a script like this:


cd <pbidir>
chmod 755 *.pbi

for i in `ls *.pbi`
    ./{i} -text -accept

This will go through and install any PBI's you place in the specified 
<pbidir> in text mode, one at a time :)
