GPO Reinstall

First I'll let everyone know that this is my first time ever working with the Autodesk suite. So please forgive me.


Here's the problem:


When one of our techs first installed the software, they selected the standalone installation instead of networked. I do know that that cannot be changed without reinstalling, but my question is this:


Do I have to uninstall the suite from every machine or will a GPO install overwrite the existing data and allow me to activate without a problem?


Any help would be appreciated.

Unfortunately, you will have to uninstall.  The product will not reinstall with it already on that machine.  It's a real pain and I wish the old registry change would still work, but sadly it does not.  Looks like extra work for you.  :smileysad:
