Has anyone managed to deploy AutoCAD 2022?

I've now written a managed install, an online kscript, and an online shell script. 

They all work COMPLETELY fine when I attempt the install manually or while logged in. However, this install just will not finish while attended. 

I'm kind of pulling my hair out.



ANSWER: AutoCad 2022 cannot be installed using the system account. All instructions are correct on their site, but it MUST be run with admin rights other than system.

  • Review the KAgent.log file. (C:\ProgramData\Quest\KACE\user\)

    Search for the EXE or ZIP or MSI name, see if it's being launched.

    Do you see any errors?

    You could also check the folder named kbots... and try to see if your payload was successfully downloaded to the computer. - Channeler 3 months ago

7.zip AutoCad_2022

AutoCad_2022\image\Installer.exe -i deploy --offline_mode -q -o AutoCad_2022\image\Collection.xml --installer_version "1.21.0.24"

I've managed to deploy AutoCAD 2022 - Simplified Chinese. Assuming you have a token flex server,  I've created the custom install 'Install' package from Autodesk manage portal. Open up the batch file for installation, modify the path and zip everything. Managed to deploy a clean installation without any add-ons & etc.

Hope this helps.

The batch file contains something like this.

chcp 65001

rem ========== Install the deployment with basic UI ==========
rem ".\image\Installer.exe" -i deploy --offline_mode --ui_mode basic -o ".\image\Collection.xml" --installer_version "1.21.0.25"

rem ========== Install the deployment silently ==========
".\image\Installer.exe" -i deploy --offline_mode -q -o ".\image\Collection.xml" --installer_version "1.21.0.25"

rem ========== Uninstall the individual product ==========

rem ========== Uninstall Autodesk AutoCAD 2022 - 简体中文 (Simplified Chinese)
rem ".\image\Installer.exe" -i uninstall -q --manifest ".\image\ACD_2022_zh-CN\setup.xml"

rem ".\image\Installer.exe" -i uninstall -q --manifest ".\image\ODIS\setup.xml"

    • Yes you need admin credentials if the deployment is a network admin image. You would need to change the path to local path if you are intending to install it locally in all the xml configurations if you intend to use SYSTEM account. Nonetheless, good luck! - Unsullied 2 months ago
