Cannot create a Product Design Suite Ultimate 2013 deployment package.

I'm trying to create a standalone deployment package for Ultimate 2013 and I get an error while the package is being made. The error tells me that the following problems prevent the deployment configuration from completing: The copy functions cannot be used.


I'm saving the deployment on a server and creating the package from a Windows 7 x64 PC with full rights to the server folder. I've seen post that say to use a Windows XP 32 bit machine to make the deployment but I don't have any Windows XP computers.

If you don't get any results here. Try the Installation & Licensing group. It's monitored by Autodesk so they can possibly answer it.

I've seen anti-virus and UAC block the copying (especially .exe) to different locations.  Make sure your share is full control to the everyone account and the file and folder permissions also have the same.  When you make your share, you'll want to use \\servername\share rather than place it a few more folders down or you will run into folder depth/character limits.  You can keep the same physical pathing on the server per whatever standards you are using (i.e. ISO-9000) but simply share the last folder.  Probably need to turn off real-time protection on both ends, or at least make an exception. If you are using media, copy it first to the HDD.
