Boy, you guys are lucky if you got all 3 discs. I purchased Revit Structure Suite 2010 and DID get 3 discs. In 2011, 2012 and now 2013 I only got Revit Structure and AutoCAD Structural Detailing...no AutoCAD! Talk about a breach of contract!
By the way, your suite is no longer being sold. Check the product page. It's on there but open and read what Autodesk says about future upgrades..."when they become available". Now ask your reseller or Autodesk what they will give you if you remain on subscription. Tight lips and no promises. They can't say but an Autodesk representative told me they won't know until the 2014 products are released. Why pay subscription renewals when Autodesk can't even tell us what we'll get for our discontinued product suite.
Hello - From my understanding - the changes in your boxed product is because you were getting duplicate programs. Structural Detailing is built on AutoCAD. There really was no reason to get vanilla AutoCAD when you already have Structural Detailing AutoCAD. To me - that made sense.
as for the Suites themselves - you are right - they are no longer selling the AutoCAD Revit Suites. Those with existing suites will remain on those suites. The reason for the change is to move people to the Building Design Suites.
As for the 2014 release - no one knows what is happening with that. No information is available for new releases until Jan. And there would be a legal embargo so resellers cannot talk about them until they are released. So do be to hard on resellers.
Hope this helps... And remember - this is from my current knowledge. Things may have changed already!
My problem is with how the vanilla AutoCAD 2013 from the ASD 2013 installation disc is recognized. When I first installed the ASD 2013 disc there was no icon for ACAD.exe, I had to find the launch icon in the program files and put it on my desktop manually. In 2011 and 2012 the installation of ASD added the icon automatically. Nonetheless, in the 2011, 2012 and 2013 versions when I open the ACAD.exe launch icon it says AutoCAd Structural Detailing across the top...not AutoCAD. When I try to load HDI drivers for AutoCAD from my plotter manufacturer the installation says "No AutoCAD product found". Similarly, when I try to download a fix or service pack for AutoCAD from Autodesk it says I don't have AutoCAD.
I've been told that I can download AutoCAD 2013 in subscription center. I sign in and see my 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2010 products. whether installed already or not they are all there...except AutoCAD 2013. In the 2013 folder I only have AutoCAD Structural Detailing and Revit Structure.
