How can I get rid of this dialog

In a silent install of Lync 2013 this dialog turns up at first run

I use config.xml

setup.exe /config "lync.ww\config.xml"

<Configuration Product="Lync">

 <Display Level="None" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="Yes" AcceptEula="Yes" />
 <Logging Type="standard" Path="%temp%" Template="Microsoft Office Lync Setup(*).txt" />
 <COMPANYNAME Value="My Firm" />
 <Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="Never" />
 <Setting Id="REBOOT" Value="ReallySuppress" />
 <Setting Id="AUTO_ACTIVATE" Value="1" />
 <Setting Id="HIDEUPDATEUI" Value="True" />

Is this not what HIDEUPDATEUI is for

If using the config.xml file, will the custom.msp created in 'updates' folder will be used?

I was able to avoid it for all users by adding the registry entry suggested by dj_xest to default under HKEY_USERS. I also added it to current user and local machine for good measure. Current User would eliminate it if the user is logged in when you push the script, default keeps it from popping up for subseqent users. In our case we had to turn it off because it throws the user a UAC box when trying to accept.

Try adding this key either from MSP or Active Setup:
