Hi rahuroy. Welcome to the forum.

I hope that I have not complicated your code with modifications but I also considered extending it as showing possible options by example. The value obtained for $Ignore and the syntax used in Run() should take your primary focus and the rest can be disregarded as suitable. This code has not been tested so do test it first.

Global $Ignore, $Ini, $Installer, $Pid

; Ini Settings file
$Ini = @ScriptDir & "\EMInstall.ini"
; Read Ini Setting: IGNORE_ERRORS=0 or IGNORE_ERRORS=1
$Ignore = 'IGNORE_ERRORS=' & IniRead($Ini, "Settings", "IGNORE_ERRORS", 0)
; Read Ini Setting: Installer to run later
$Installer = IniRead($Ini, "Settings", "Installer", "")

; If $Installer is something and $Installer exists, then run it.
If $Installer And FileExists($Installer) Then
    $Pid = Run('"' & @ComSpec & '" /c "' & $Installer & '" /v "' & $Ignore & '"', @ScriptDir, @SW_HIDE)
    ; Check if @error is set. (Use of Exit is optional as used for example)
    If @error Then Exit 1
    ; Wait for process to close
    ProcessWaitClose($Pid)
Else
    ; Act on condition failure of $Installer
    If Not $Installer Then Exit 2
    If Not FileExists($Installer) Then Exit 3
EndIf

The Ini file looks critical so a FileExists() on that may seem good to add. Choices for you to consider. :)

You are not closing your string...in your last post, this part
' /v"$Ignore",
starts with ', and should end with ' before you start using a variable($Ignore)...you would also need to place an & between the string close and any variable, unless you wanted to literally pass $Ignore as part of the string(not its' value).

Since your INI file has =1 already in it, try this

$Ini = @ScriptDir & "\EMInstall.ini"
Global $Ignore = IniRead($INI, "Settings", "IGNORE_ERRORS", "")
Global $Installer=IniRead($INI,"Settings","Installer","")

$sCommand = $INSTALLER & ' /v "' & $Ignore & '"'    ;Make command line
MsgBox(262208, 'Command being sent', $sCommand) ;display command line for testing purposes
Run(@ComSpec & ' /c ' & $sCommand, @ScriptDir, @SW_HIDE)    ;run command line
