Silent Install, but can't suppress UAC or Language Prompt

I need to install GlobiLab software (globisens.net/support) on some staff Windows laptops, and I'd like to push this out silently through our K1000 appliance. However, when I'm testing it out through the CMD window on my test computer (not bringing KACE into it yet - just figuring out the right switches/syntax), I can't get it FULLY silent. I only have an .exe file and haven't been able to extract any .msi from it. I've requested an .msi from the software company but haven't heard back yet. I can't even find a readme file from them...
Anyway, at a command prompt, just typing GlobiLab.exe /s, I get the UAC prompt and a window asking to select my Language. After that it installs the rest silently. I've tried a few different combinations, such as /s /sms, /s /sms /f2Globilog.log, /Silent, /qn, /s LANGUAGE="English" to no avail. I don't see an .iss response file either.
I configure random programs to install through KACE occasionally, but lots of time passes in between and it seems like each time I have to go back and re-try all these different methods until something works.
Any suggestions on how to make this completely silent so the end user doesn't need to respond to any prompts?
