The following install parameter solved my immediate issue:
msiexec /quiet /norestart INSTALLDIR="C:\Program Files (x86)\Appeon\Shared\Powerbuilder\X64\" /i PB64RT170.msi

Using runtime packager, both the 32 bit and 64 bit select the default install location as "C:\program files (x86)\Appeon\shared\powerbuilder".  The 64 bit should default to "C:\program files (x86)\Appeon\shared\powerbuilder\X64" so both runtimes can co-exist.  Need to install these via script in an unattended mode, so need parameter to set target directory
