Software Deployment Question
Waves MaxxAudio K2000

Hey guys, I'm building our Windows 10 image on a hypervisor and deploying it with the K2000. We got in a few new Optiplex 7450 aio machines and I'm running into a strange problem. Looks like Dell uses an audio driver/utility called Waves MaxxAudio. When we first deployed my test image to the new 7450's, the driver was installed with no problem. Now though, it is not getting installed during the build and I have no idea why.
I was thinking it my be getting the UAC settings when it joins the domain, then that might mess up the driver install, but I tested building the machines without joining the domain at all and the driver utility was not installed.
I've downloaded the audio driver package and extracted it directly into the k2000 driver feed in case there was a driver update that caused the issue.
I've removed the entire driver package for the system, and reinstalled the driver package hoping that would fix it.
When I go into the system, I can see that it drops the application into program files, and when I run it manually, it works fine, but it just doesn't get installed during the deployment.
My concern is that there are other drivers that are not getting installed correctly. I can see the AMD control panel, so it seems to be ok.
Do you guys have any ideas? I know I can add a script that says if exist run the msi, but I would rather not have 1 off post install tasks that I have to keep an eye out for.
Thanks in advance.
