    Have you set the permissions on the policy to domain computers? if not they will never apply.

    I know that they have a problem with the 6.4 version. It won't install for me either, tech support at ABTutor said it was because they included several languages into 6.4.

    Try editing the msi with ORCA MSI Editor and removing all but 1033 from languages.

    go to view---> summary information, set languages to 1033 and then save.

    This has fixed a few failed installs for me.

    Contact them they are very good and will talk you though how to set it op and create a mst file to customize the install during deloyment.

    Also dont forget to check the share permissions where the files are being deployed from.

    You could always try to get a pre 6.4 install and then do a Group Policy install with that , when all is setup run the 6.4.3 setup on the control machine and update the clients by client maintenance.
    i know it is a bit of a mess around but it saves individaul installs
