AutoCAD 2014 - A way to attach an .arg file to the deployment?

We have an .arg file that sets up all of our paths, &c to our system. I would like to have the installation script use this to set up everything rather than have each user migrate settings.  Is there a way to do this? I noticed in setting up the deployment, that you can manually add all these settings, but we have a lot and I would rather just incorporate the .arg file instead.

Remove all of the OOTB desktop icons from the deployment, and script in the copy of one of your own which points to the required ARG file.
