I've been spending a bit of time creating the deployment installs for various products within the Autodesk Building Design suite, and thus far everything works correctly. The deployment folders all work correctly using Microsoft ConfigMgr (may be known as SCCM so some of you) and the setups provided by the deployment guides are spot on - kudos to Autodesk for making the deployment relatively painless.
Another site is purchasing the Product Design suite, and ther'e some crossover of applications between the two. Rather than create another deployment install, can I simply modify my existing deployment using the existing one as a template, put in the serial number for the different suite, and then this deployment will be saved with a different .ini file so I can call this when using the setup.exe? Or will this cause problems with the existing deployment?
You will need to create a separate deployment because the license coding for the product is built into the suites.
But if two suites use the same application (for example AutoCAD 2012), could we not have two .ini files that the deployment would create - which then does the install and refers to the correct serial number for each suite?
I just don't want to have 2 large 4GB deployment installs of what is effectively the same application.
