Have any of you tried to do a silent installation (without modifying the MSI) to a different path (i.e. D:\Win32\Autodesk\.."?

For Design Review and DWG TrueView on Windows 7 64-bit.


Figuring out which runtime installs are required is frustrating for 2013. The following are all mentioned in this topic, various blogs, the setup.ini, etc.


Surely all of this is not required?


  • x86 Visual C++ Runtimes: 2005 SP1 ATL, 2008 SP1, 2010 SP1
  • x64 Visual C++ Runtimes: 2008 SP1, 2010 SP1
  • wmfdist64.exe, NetFx20.exe, msxml6_x64.msi
  • DirectX 9
  • DOTNET4;DOTNET4KB2468871

In the TrueView setup.ini the AOEM prerequisite is listed as:


which doesn't even mention .NET 4.0 which the readme specifically says is required including Update 1 being mandatory.


In the Design Review Installation guide it mentions VCC2010SP1x86 and .NET 4 but the ADR prerequisite in the TrueView setup.ini lists the following.



The main ones I would like to eliminate are:

2005 VC++, MSXML, .NET 2.0, WMFDIST


I think the reason why people are listing VCC 2005 is a prerequisite for their deployment system to work rather than for TV or ADR itself. Is that correct? I can't imagine why .NET 2.0 would be listed.


Thanks in advance.

Did you try specifying INSTALLDIR=<path> ?  For example...


setup.exe /Q /W /I /v"INSTALLDIR=D:\TrueView2013"


or (possibly)...


setup.exe /Q /W /I setup.ini INSTALLDIR=D:\TrueView2013
