Windows 7 scripting with UAC enabled

Has anyone had any luck executing scripts (in this case a script to update Java to the flavor of the week) through the Kbox on clients running Windows 7 with UAC enabled? We are experimenting with the 5.1 RC and having no luck so long as UAC is enabled. The script works great when run manually on Win 7 (after clearing the UAC prompt) and it deploys perfectly to our Windows XP clients.

If the Kbox cannot work around UAC are there other tools you use to deploy and manage applications in your environment?

I'm fairly certain you're stuck with disabling UAC if you want the KBOX agent to be able to do much of anything. I'm not sure if KACE is working on a solution other than disabling UAC completely.
