Problem deploying Conexant audio update driver

On all of our Windows7 machines we have a GPO that restricts the user from installing.
And we cant change the GPO.

When we deploy the driverpackage "Conexant 20561 SmartAudio HD" the drivers get
installed but needs a restart. After the restart when a user logs on they get
a message that says "C:\windows\system32\newdev.exe" This program is blocked by
a group policy. For more information contact your Systemadministrator.

I have tried "REBOOT=ReallySuppress" to avoid a restart but then the package fails.

Has anyone a smoth solution for this driverinstall?

How exactly does the .exe get launched ? (from "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run", self-repair... etc.)

This installation can't be found from "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run".
I can find many other installations there.

This package tries to run from a catalog that is being created during installation "C:\Drivers\Win\Audio\setup.exe"...
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
