No need to copy to TEMP, works fine from UNC. Just remember the
1) Have to use /W switch... Tells installer to run in SMS mode.
2) You absolutely cannot have spaces in the .ini file path... Unless you
use the workdir, and even then the filename cannot have spaces. Must be
a bug with the AutoCAD installer.

Oh, only other thing is that we use WPKG Express (great tool), so the
quotes below might not be correct, since WPKG Express handles all
quotes-in-quotes when the file is parsed...

In retrospect it probably was not a good idea to install the service
patch after the base package.  Better to wrap it into the deployment or
to install it as a separate wpkg package that depends on the base
