How to Specify Region When Doing Quiet Install
You can set the QODBC Region key yourself. It can be found at:
My Computer HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWARE QODBC Driver for QuickBooks
The valid values are the US (USA), CA (Canada), UK (United Kingdom), and OZ (Australia/New Zealand/Asia) however, CD Keys are locked to a region value except for the US and CA, which share the same CDKEY.

LPSTR INTFUNC FQActivate(LPSTR sCDKeyEntered)
