Acad2000i Documentation/Installation (Please Help)

I've received my AutoCAD 2000i upgrade via VIP. The documentation with the
system doesn't include an installation guide. How am I supposed to know how
to setup the AutoCAD Today Settings without documentation?

When I installed AutoCAD 2000 on the server, it installed itself on the
server also. When I installed AutoCAD 2000i, it did not. I pointed my user
support files to the server before and under 2000i they aren't there because
it didn't perform a local installation. If I run the network setup, it
installs on drive C:, but my client deployment is on drive D:.

Thanks,

Brian

Hi Brian,

The Network Setup Wizard is exactly the same except that the Cad Manager Control
was added to it. Also, you can view the online install guide before you
actually do the install.

When you did the server install, you needed to point at your server, just like
you did with AutoCAD 2000 and even R14.

Client Deploy:
\\servername\sharename\deploy (Or something like this.)

You can also setup AutoCAD to install silently or verbose and onto what ever
drive you want.

Take care.

By the way, the best way to read the install guide is to use the
IGVIEWER.EXE tool, located in the root directory of the 2000i CD.

Thanks,

I think that for the $8,000 per year I spend on VIP subscriptions at least
one set of documentation would be included.

Installation manuals come with my VIP subscription for my network seats.
