Deploying DWG TrueView 2013

Hello everyone,


I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to prevent destop shortcuts from being created while deploying DWG TrueView 2013.


I was finally able to deploy this application, using SCCM 2012, but I'd like to prevent the desktop shortcuts from being created.


Also, I was able to install this application using: setup.exe /w /t /l /q setup.ini     (Note: for SCCM 2012, make sure not to enclose this command in quotes; leave it as shown)


What is the proper setup.exe parameter to uninstall it?

#==================== Install Info



The above statement was changed in the setup.ini and doesn't seem to work. The shortcut is still created on the desktop.

Okay, since it seems that there isn't any viable solution for removing the desktop shortcut for TrueView 2013; I used a batch file installation.

I created a INSTALL.CMD batch file, the the following content in it:

REM Install DWG TrueView 2013
setup.exe /w /t /l /q setup.ini


REM Delete desktop shortcut created by SETUP.EXE for all users
del /q c:\users\public\desktop\dwgtru~1.lnk



If a user is logged on while TrueView is deployed, the user will see the icon on the desktop, but as soon as setup.exe finishes, the second line in the batch file will execute and remove the icon.
