devenv /setup  

This switch takes no arguments. The devenv /setup command is typically given as the last step of the installation process. Use of the /setup switch does not start Visual Studio.

You must run devenv as an administrator in order to use the /setup (devenv.exe) and /InstallVSTemplates (devenv.exe) switches.
