help with silent install EULA file

I'm trying to get CA Introscope Workstation to install using the silent install but i'm stuck.  No matter what I do, i consistently get this message:  


... eula.txt is not a valid End User License Agreement.
Edit the responsefile so that the eulaFile property refers to a valid End User License Agreement whose terms have been accepted, then rerun the silent installer.


I noticed that there was no eula.txt file in the package when i encountered this document: 

Launch the Installer - CA Application Performance Management - 9.7 - CA Technologies Documentation 

However upon further searching i found the following links:

New ASM, Exec Insight, APM KBs for June 2015 

Responsefile EULA error on silent install 


So according to the second link, i copy lgpl.txt to the install directory and rename to eula.txt.

Then I add a line at the end as per the original instructions that says LGPL=accept.  


I still get this error. 


I also tried renaming ca-eula.txt to eula.txt and changing the last line to LGPL=accept, just in case.  


Does anybody have a valid EULA file?  I compared lgpl.txt to ca-eula.txt and they are VERY DIFFERENT.  Even down to formatting.  lgpl.txt is all clear text with nothing commented out.  ca-eula.txt has nearly every line commented out except for CA-EULA=accept.


I don't exactly understand what the executable is looking for in eula.txt that it isn't finding and my only real comparison is the ca-eula file.
