The Product Design Suite should have an update manager that automatically searches for hotfixes and service packs. These updates could be presented in the Launchpad application for the user to apply the updates as this would like.
This would be a better way for users to become aware of and install all the various service packs and hotfixes that may affect the numerous programs they have available in the Product Design Suite.
I am attempting to install the design suite on a stand alone HP Z620 that is running all latest MS software (Win 7). The suite hangs up at step 44 of 46 remaining, when it is trying to install ACAD Mechanical 2014, and gives an error message that says "Allied Product is not found". Then the installation program stops running and shows all the products that did not install.
I suspected it was because there was no AutoCAD installed, and so I went to my subscription site and tried to download ACAD but the latest version I could find for myself was 2012. I downloaded that version and attempted to install it on my machine, but could not get past the serial number screen as the serial number and product version numbers would not match.
So, I have no ACAD on my machine and the Suite Ultimate refuses to install any more programs. I have attempted to reinstall the suite without any luck. This machine is new to me, only 5 mo. old, and I did transfer Inventor 2013 from the last year's suite onto the machine (but not the rest of the 2013 Suite Ultimate, only Inventor). 2014 Suite Ultimate was meant to be installed entirely on this new workstation as the other one has been retired. Does anyone have any ideas as to a next move?
Having a major issue currently with installing my AutoDesk Ultimate Suite. Problem is quite simple while the solution seems to be rather annoying. I have my computer built in a newer, more technology update fashion. I run a small yet fast SSD to only run my OS. The issue is this leaves practically no additonal space on my boot C: drive. I have a couple of other hard drives specifically for music, games, other very large programs. Well like any other major brand of software AutoDesk is attempting to install all of the Product suite, which is around 8-9GB of data on my boot drive C:. Put simply I just can not do that, the issue is I have not found a way to install the program on my alternative (non boot) drives and am quite frustrated.
I am currently very frustrated as this install process seems to be very old fashion as new technology has surpassed the needs to have a massive, yet very slow main C: drive.
Of course as luck would be it I can not get in contact with anyone from AutoDesk.
