Symantec Antivirus 10.2 Client Push

I've installed Symanted Antivirus 10.2 on a server at a client site. Everything's gone (relatively) smoothly, and I've been able to use the internal deployment tool to push the client to a test XP machine successfully. However, it seems that the \VPHOME\CLT-INST\*\ folders, except the WIN32 folder, are bare. The installation of the server program created custom installation files for pushing the client to 32-bit XP machines, but didn't create the files for pushing the client to any other operating systems. 32-bit Vista (in\VPHOME\CLT-INST\WIN32VISTA\) is the primary concern here.
Is there a way, maybe through the System Center Console, to create the files that the Client Remote Install Tool needs in order to push the client to a remote machine? I have the standard, base Vista installation files from the CD, but the tool won't push successfully using those files.

I think this document will give you the instructions you need to prepare and use the Vista install files with the system center:

The key was this bit:
"copy GRC.DAT ... from the Symantec AntiVirus server location c:\Program Files\Symantec Client Security\Symantec AntiVirus\CLT-INST\Win32 to the CDVista\SAVVISTA ... folder from which you want to install."
I copied all the files from the CD folder into the \VPHOME\CLT-INST\WIN32VISTA\ folder, along with the GRC.DAT file from ..\WIN32\, and the push was successful to a test Vista machine. Thank you!
