Hi alan-luayon,


Welcome to Autodesk Discussion Groups.


Please turn off silent installations and observe where the installer fails. This may give an indication of which resource the permissions are lacking in. Also, ensure that you have full permissions to your machine and to the location where the deployment exists while you are installing from the deployment. 


Please ensure that the installing user has Local Administrative group membership and that no restrictions are imposed to required users account. Note that Local Administrative privileges are required for installation. Do not relocate the My Documents folder off of the Local System and do not use Roaming Profiles.


Local installation log file will also provide indication via error codes.


Appending Network Administration Guide for reference.


Thank you.

1. Create an deployment for Navisworks Freedom 2013 (servername)


2. Create a batch file navisfreedom2013.bat (see the attached file) rename it from navisfreedom2013.txt to navisfreedom2013.bat


3. Change adminpcname & servername in the batch file


3. Use psexec command: psexec -c -f -d -u domain\administrator \\targetpcname c:\navisfreedom2013.bat


4. Enjoy.
