Cisco VPN profile problems when using SCCM 2012

Hello, my company is still using Cisco VPN client 5.0.07.0440 for Windows 7 64-bit. I decided to try and make the app available in Config manager 2012. The only problem I am having is with the .pcf profile. Normally, you would have the profile (.pcf) file in the same directory as the MSI file, and the install automatically copies the profile to the Profiles folder. This isn't working when installing from the software center. SCCM copies all the install files including the profile to the ccmcache folder like it should, but the install itself doesn't copy the profile into 'program files (x86)\Cisco Systems\VPN Client\Profiles'. I narrowed this down to a custom action that is failing in the msi. This custom action is called 'CsCaExe_CopyExtPcfToInstallDir' and it calls on a Cisco exe file called Callmsihelper12 to copy the profile using a command line. Basically it goes something like this: -cmd CopyAndBackupFiles -src "[SourceDir]" -dst "[INSTALLDIR]Profiles" -file *.pcf -rb 0. Specifically, it's having a problem with the [SourceDir]. It has no problem copying the profile if I run the install directly from the PC using the same command line that I do in config manager. If I replace [SourceDir] with the exact path to the files on the server, it works, but I was wondering if anyone knew of something else I can replace [SourceDir] with to tell it the source is in the ccmcache folder. Or perhaps there is a way to change what the [SourceDir] points to somehow? I looked in the tables and actions with Admin studio and could not find anything.
