Hi, I was trying to run execute Autodesk 2011 silently , We use network license and I used the below command for execution. 


Setup.exe /t /qb /Language en-US /c ACAD: INSTALLDIR="C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2011" ACADSERIALPREFIX=xxx ACADSERIALNUMBER=xxxxxxxx ADLM_PRODKEY=xxxxx ACADFIRSTNAME="A" ACADLASTNAME="User" ACADORGANIZATION="Users Corporation" InstallLevel=5

I have given the correct serial number and product key but I still get an error saying "Setup is unable to validate your Serial number or Product key during command-line install"

Please provide solution  for this issue.

Hello GeethaG,


The command line you are using is for a stand-alone license. You mentioned that you have a Network License, so you need to use a command line for a Network type license. You can use this as an example:


"D:\setup.exe" /t /qb /Language en-US /c ACAD: INSTALLDIR="C:\Program Files\AutoCAD 2010 en-US\" ACADSERIALPREFIX=123ACADSERIALNUMBER=12345678ADLM_​PRODKEY=ABCDE ACADFIRSTNAME="My First Name" ACADLASTNAME="My Last Name" ACADORGANIZATION="Organization" InstallLevel=5   ACADSTANDALONENETWORKTYPE="3" ACADLICENSESERVERTYPE="Single Server License" ACADLICENSETYPE="Network License" ACADSERVERPATH="myFlexNetServer 000000000000"  


Hope this helps.
