I have about a dozen autodesk products where I need to change the Licpath.lic.
According to Autodesk ADSKFLEX_LICENSE_FILE will not work with a redundant server setup so I need to replace the licpath.lic on every product.
Does anyone have a vbs script that they could share that copies over a new Licpath.lic file?
I would be using this as a machine script at bootup, not a login script.
I recommend never using the redundant model because it does not work as intended and the only redundancy is the amount of work required to implement and keep it running. Now that I am off my soap box, you can find a suitable solution here:
Since the file structure will be the same, you could just run a simple DOS batch file to do a copy overwrite from a shared location with the modified LICPATH.LIC to the Autodesk application root folder.
You need to disable UAC. It serves no purpose but to make your life miserable. Definitely doesn't need to be enabled in an enterprise setting. You have group policies for that. I never understood why people insist on handicapping themselves and then try to explain ways around the very obstacles they set for themselves. If you're looking for a method to circumvent UAC, then UAC really isn't serving its purpose. If you can circumvent it, anyone can. Just turn it off.
I wish you luck. I can attest that as part of IT, I would never set UAC on my users. Perhaps your IT can make an exception for your engineers, or at the very least, in the short term while you enlist your necessary changes.
I can respect that. The IT guy in me says to just use the login script... but you probably really don't have access to that!
