Deploy CIPC 7.0.5 using group policy

I am trying to deploy CIPC throughout my organization using a group policy software deployment policy.  I have successfully deployed it to a test system by creating a deployment policy which points to the msi file.  However, I need to be able to specify the devicename and the tftp IP addresses so the user does not need to do this.  Looking through the docs, I see that there are command line options that allow these items to be specified, but I am not sure how I can use that with a software distribution policy.  The TFTP IP address is always the same, but for device name I am using the windows computer name for simplicity.

I wrote a very simple VBscript that queries for the local computer name and inserts it into a string that is the installation command line.  The VBScript will then run that command line.  So for example, if I run the VBscript on my computer, it will run the command:

msiexec /i \\server.domain.local\install\cisco\CiscoIPCommunicatorSetup.msi /qb DEVICENAME="MyPCName" TFTP1=""

This will install CIPC with the desired settings, however I want to stay away from using VBS to launch the MSI because I'm not sure if doing it this way will allow group policy to determine if the installation was successful like it will if I directly link the policy to the msi file.

Any thoughts?

Deploy CIPC 7.0.5 using group policy

Anyone?  I assume there must be some folks out there deploying CIPC using group policy.
