SMS refers to the Microsoft Systems Management Server. More information can be
found here <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/System_Center_Configuration_Manager>.

The workdir attribute is used by WPKG in order to switch the working directory
of the command to the specified folder. In this case it's used in order to
execute the installation binary within the setup source folder and allows to
specify relative paths to the INI file.

Just note that using the "%SOFTWARE%" variable within the workdir attribute
might not always work since UNC paths are not supported by all
installers/scripts/binaries as a working path. For example cmd.exe will not
accept an UNC working directory.
