CMAK VPN Profile GPO Deployment help

Hello,

I have created a VPN profile on Windows Server 2008 R2 using CMAK, and now I am attempting to deploy it to my Windows 7 (x64) machines via GPO.  I can confirm that the VPN profile works when run from the CMAK created .exe.  

I run into problems trying to using a .bat file (just using .bat file for testing to figure out what parameters to use in GPO).  
In the .bat I have the following:
\\serverdc01\NETLOGON\VPN\vpn.exe /q:a /c:"cmstp.exe vpn.inf /s /au"

In GPO, user->windows settings->scripts->logon
Script Name:
\\serverdc01\NETLOGON\VPN\vpn.exe
Script Parameters:
/q /c:"cmstp.exe \\serverdc01\netlogon\vpn\vpn.inf /s /au"

In both cases (.bat and GPO) the VPN connection is made, but the shared secret key isn't loaded.  Also, the /au isn't working.  I know /au isn't working because I don't have the option to select the VPN before login.
If I run the .exe natively, then select make avail. for all users, everything works fine.  I have the selection avail. on the login screen, and the shared secret is configured on the vpn client.

Could really use some help pointing out where I am going wrong.  Ultimately, looking for solution to push via GPO.

TIA

The resolution to this problem was running the CMAK created executable as startup script.  This runs the .exe as SYSTEM and avoids any UAC issues.
