msi in GPO not working: "Run Setup.exe to install AutoCAD LT 2013"

Somehow AutoCAD LT 2013 will not install through GPO.


The steps I have done:

1. Created the deployment image

2. Created the GPO

3. Pointed the GPO to \\ServerName\Software\AutoCAD\2013LT\x64\AdminImage\x64\acadlt\acadlt.msi

4. Assigned the modification file \\ServerName\Software\AutoCAD\2013LT\x64\AdminImage\x64\acadlt\modification.mst

5. The eventlogs show: "Run Setup.exe to install AutoCAD LT 2013"


Running the msi manually gives the same error: "Run Setup.exe to install AutoCAD LT 2013"


It's beginning to drive me nuts after the many attempts, recreating the deployment etc.

Can anyone please help or tell me what I'm doing wrong?


Thank you very much!

I have found a workaround on another discussion forum;

Autodesk should fix this or at least inform customers (and respond to questions).



Autodesk DWG TrueView 2013 error when Deploying via Group Policy

Autodesk has changed the MSI-based deployment for DWG TrueView so that it fails.  Specifically:

Event ID: 10005
Source: MsiInstaller
Description: Product: DWG TrueView 2013 -- Run Setup.exe to install DWG TrueView 2013.


Edit dwgviewr.msi with Orca.

There is a line in the Section "LaunchCondition"
Description:  Run Setup.exe to install [ProductName].

Create a Transform to remove this condition check.

Transform - New Transform
Right-click on the row with the Condition listed above - Drop Row - OK
Transform - Generate Transform
