I am trying to create a silent installation for CFD2012. This silent installation will be shared for clients users to do the installation.

There is a document of how to create deployment : http://wikihelp.autodesk.com/Product_Design_Suite/enu/2012/Help/2000-Installa0/0148-Network_148/0149...

 

This seems help to me. But I just cant find how to reach the steps of "Configure <name> page".

Can anyone help me?

Thanks

We had to go old school on this one.

 

“C:\Autodesk\Simulation CFD 2012\setup.exe” /t /qb /c CFD: INSTALLDIR="C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Simulation CFD 2012" ACADSTANDALONENETWORKTYPE=3 ACADSERVERPATH=”LICENSE_SERVERname 000000000000” ACADSERIALPREFIX=### ACADSERIALNUMBER=######## ACADLICENSETYPE="Network License" ACADLICENSESERVERTYPE="Single Server License" REBOOT=ReallySuppress

 

It is also based on the old Maya and MotionBuilder Silent installs in 2010.

Thanks for the command. I tried it out, saw the problem as the attached picture.cfdesign-2012-installerror1.JPG

Any clue? Thanks.

Since there is no deplyement icon as what I expected origionally, I tried this command and the installation script based on this article:

http://wikihelp.autodesk.com/Product_Design_Suite/enu/2012/Help/0000-Installa0/0148-Network_148/0162...

my network license server is specified as : 27002@xxx.domain. So I have question regarding to the script of RunSingleLicenseServerInstall :

strADSKServerPath = "myFlexNetServer" 

' HOSTID or MAC address
strADSKServerHOSTID = "000000000000"
'
' Consolidate the two values
strADSKServerPath = strADSKServerPath & " " & strADSKServerHOSTID

 

How can I specify this license server in this syntax?

 

Thanks again.

Can you send me an email with your exact command? Use the envelope icon beside you handle.

This is the command I am using. I changed the setup.exe folder according to my situation.:

“C:\Autodesk\Simulation_CFD_2012_MultiLingual_Win_32bit\setup.exe” /t /qb /c CFD: INSTALLDIR="C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Simulation CFD 2012" ACADSTANDALONENETWORKTYPE=3 ACADSERVERPATH=”portno@domain.com” ACADSERIALPREFIX=xxx ACADSERIALNUMBER=xxxxxxxx ACADLICENSETYPE="Network License" ACADLICENSESERVERTYPE="Single Server License" REBOOT=ReallySuppress

 

Thanks!

The issue with the command line is the type of double quote used.  Ones marked in blue are  good, red ones confuse the cmd.exe.   Please retype double quotes using the keyboard.

 

THANKS to my co-worker Hashim Mundol on this one.
