Changes to Command Line Install Options for Tableau Server Setup

The Setup program for Tableau Server on Windows was rewritten for the 2019.4 release. This changed a number of the command line install options. If you have automated your installation or upgrade of Tableau Server in a version prior to 2019.4.0, be sure to review the changes below so you can update your process for the new installer.
