Create Deployment

Our server is outdated and it may be awhile before we update it. Want to create a deployment for Building Design Suite 2014. What would be the best way to install the suite. Can I go "install on this computer" for all users until we get an upgraded server or can I create a deployment onto an external hard drive and use that to install for the other users?

As for the deployment server location, it doesn't really matter how amazing the server is, so long as it has a decent network card and enough storage space. 

 

Otherwise, you can install direct from download as network version.  You don't technically need a deployment image if you choose not to.  I don't recommend creating a deployment to a removable drive though.  That one is a nightmare.

Thanks for the reply. I tried to create a deployment on our server and I got and error message saying Building Design Suite 2014 is not supported by the operating system (Windows 2000 Server). So I could not go any further.

This is normal. Create the deployment from your workstation and target the
deployment location to the UNC share on the server. Done.

Ok I started setp. Now I get a message saying it cannot find "MediumImageLibrary2014.msi" file then it stops.

You need to disable your anti-virus.

When I try to choose a location for the deployment none of my drives show. Only "network" is an option. Thru network I cannot see any drives. Our server is drive I:\ which is not listed on the "network" nor is any other drive. Is 2014 only "network" based and no longer able to install on computers? Or is there a setting I am missing? Frustration is kicking in. Never had this much trouble before.

Create a share writable to everyone then use a UNC path as your target.

Do not use mapped drive. Use UNC path for your deployment location, like \\computername\sharedfolder.
