/quiet and /passive not working on Skype install using KACE SMA

I have created a managed installation for Skype for Business 2016.

In the additional parameters section I tested /? and it gave me the list of parameters including /quiet and /passive for no user interaction. When I run it with those parameters it still brings up the install now or customize option. It is not ideal to have users click install now and would like to get it to work with no user interaction. 

I found this link here: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/security/en-US/63d8e855-1f84-40c3-b6ef-4913686878d6/skype-for-business-2016-client-silent-installation-through-sccm?forum=sfbfr

But am not sure how to integrate to Kace or if there is another way.

Any help is much appreciated.

Most Office products you have to use the Office Customization Tool (OCT) this will allow you to create a customConfig.xml file that you can place in the updates folder along with a .msp file. I've deployed Skype for Business Basic with this approach. pcteklink
