AutoCAD Architecture 2012

I am having an issue that when I make a deployment, and install it on  a system, each time a new user logs in  and tries to run AutoCAD ( specifically AutoCAD Architechture 2012) it reinstalls (configures for each user?).  This would not be a huge issue if it were not for the fact that is dumps  about 200 MB of sample files (even though I’ve  told it everywhere I know possible to not install samples) in the user’s My Documents. The main issue being with this that their My Documents is redirected to their network storage and is only set at 250 MB.  Causing almost every users  space to go over quota.

Is there any way to stop the reinstalling and is there any way to make sure it does not put any files into the Users My Documents? 


Client OS: windows 7 Sp1 x 32

This is a known issue with the redirect for My Documents.  It's very similar to a roaming profiles issue which is non-supported for this software.  Some users have had success redirecting the My Documents folder back to the local machine and running the software.  Then you might be able to redirect the path back to the server, with limited success.
