I would like to make sure that the splunkd and splunkweb services aren't automatically started by the Splunk Windows installer right after the installation is finished.
How can this be achieved?

Passing the "LAUNCHSPLUNK=0" argument to the Splunk MSI installer with msiexec will prevent splunkd and splunkweb from starting automatically.
Example for a Splunk 4.1.4 x86 installer :
Note that this will also configure both services for a manual startup, so make sure you change that afterward if that's not the desired setting.
More flags that can be passed to the Splunk Windows installer to automate your deployment can be found in the web documentation :
