Administration 7.5.1 CF1; 7.5.1 Windows

I was successful in deploying Lotus Notes 6.5.x with Active Directory software distribution policy (thanks to the LN IS Tuner), but I am struggling to deploy SameTime 7.5.1 with the same MSI-based technology (Windows Istaller + Group Policy).

Technote FAQ #1221650: Using MSI file for silent installs of Sametime clients.
- Question
Is there a Microsoft® Installer (.MSI) file for silent nstallations of Sametime® Connect client for Desktops, to use in cnjunction with Active Directory software distribution policy? This would be similar to the one available for installing Notes® clients.
- Answer
An MSI installer is available in Sametime release 7.5.1. You must upgrade to release 7.5.1 to take advantage of this feature.

Using Sametime 7.5.1 CumulativeFix1 (CF1) was a bummer, because the MSI package was not "pure", but built on Macromedia (was Installshiedl) ISScript Engine.

Lately I tested ST7.5.1 _CF2_; the nice thing of CF2 is that it does not longer depend on ISScript Engine, but I was not able to install via GPO or even create an MST transform customization file.

I was able to create the "Administrative Installation Point" by running "sametime-connect-win-7.5.1.exe /a", but when I try to simulate the GPO installation by running msiexec from the command line ("msiexec /i setup.msi /qb") the setup starts, but after some seconds I get the following error: "Exiting Install: License Agreement not accepted".

After that I tried to modify the "Property" table with MS-Orca inside the setup.msi by setting "LAPAGREE" and/or "AgreeToLicense" rows to "Yes" but I was not successfull either with MSI-direct modification or MST transform creation, I get always the same error.

Was anyone able to silent install Sametime 7.5.1 in conjunction with Active Directory software distribution policy as stated in IBM Technote FAQ #1221650?

Thanks in advance, Gabriele.
