Subassembly Composer 2014

How do you install subassembly composer for 2014?  I can't seem to find it as a download.  I also restrted installation of Infrastructure Suite 2014 to see if I can add it and it was not an available choice.

A little rant: why is everything so hidden with this software?

When I created my deployment, it was listed as an optional subcomponent from within the AutoCAD Civil 3D 2014 installation wizard.  It's still a separate program.

In IDSP 2014 when the splash screen appears with all the programs to install, Civil 3D has to be expanded to allow selection of the SAC

Hmm, I don't see ant option for SAC. I have the SSA, Express, geo... No SAC?


Do you really have it listed in 2014 IDSP? Do you have an admin image?

I had the same problem.  You will need to re-install it from the flashdrive.  I have since included it in the network deployment.  However, I didn't see it when I initially installed the IDSP.  When you re-run the installation, answer all the questions as if you were doing an initial installation, then it will give you a list of all the application and they will be marked "installed".  Find Civil 3D and click the drop-down to expand Civil 3D and check the box. 


Yes, it is there, and yes, it is buried under several layers of...what can we call it, organization?
