Well I edited the MSI file and it installed using group policy with the password and mirror driver settings.
I can't find the abcontrol.dat file on our tutor station but we're V6. If that just sets options that can be set during install then i'm not that bothered.
Maybe the name has changed I can't find that file and I've go a group set for one of our suites. There is an ABControl.xml I'll take a look at that, I might even have a look at the manualno it holds the stuff you setup inside the program. Groupings of computers and application policies. perhaps it isnt created straightaway.
"Most AB Tutor Controls settings (including policies and groups etc.) are stored in a file called ABControl.xml. Under XP this file is located in the folder in which AB Tutor Control was installed, in Vista you'll find this file in c:\program data\abconsulting\ab tutor control. After you have configured one Tutor Control program you can copy this file to other Tutor Control installations so you donít need to re-enter all the settings each time. "

One thing that I’ve noticed is that when you use the ABTC6_MST_Creator file to enter the installation details the connection password appears in plain text in the msi so this can be read using orca or similar. You can manually generate an mst file so the password doesn't actually appear in plain text, of course someone could take both files and apply the mst but it's another stumbling block for nosey people.
Unless I've missed something this is a bit of an oversight on behalf of AB Software the password should really be hidden.
Removing domain users from NTFS permissions on the msi file and adding domain computers works.
