I created an AutoCad Electrical 2013 deployment and went to install it on a client computer to have it sit in the Setup Initialization phase for hours. ( I left it over night)
I don't get any prompts to answer, the progress bar fills up and then retreats back to half full. It continues this for as long as you let it.
I modified the deployment and it didn't help. Any help would be appreciated.
Modify the deployment. Do not make it a silent install. Post any installation error logs that get created.
Please try to recreate the deployment, and make it unsilent install in the same page which you put the deployment name and path in. After that try to install from the new deployment.
Let me know if you still have the same issue, and also attache the log files from %temp% folder.
Same issue here. I left my install going for ages and it sat on "Initializing setup" for the entire time. This prompt has a scroll bar that inifinitlely loops and when I look at taskmgr I can see that the setup*32.exe has been called but nothing else has (dotnet 4 I think is called first during a normal setup).
Cpu usage sits on nothing and Network usage bursts to about 3% when the deployment starts but drops to 0% after a few seconds.
Nothing in the event logs that is helpful, no warning or errors or completions around this.
Interestingly enough though once I remade the deployment share (not from scratch, I used the existing files) without the silent install paramter it all went through the setup fine.
Also, the log is not created when I had the silent install option enabled so it's not even at that stage when it's halting.
I was having the same problem with AutoCAD and AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 32-bit and 64-bit Deployments, with the AutoCAD Setup Initialization being stuck on initializing. Your suggestion about re-creating the deployment ("run silent" was already off) did the trick. I can now do the various deployments!

Hi, i even has the same problem with Autodesk Product Design Suite 2013. Setup is initializing are hanging and nothing more happens. I will try to uncheck silent install as well. Autodesk, whats in this problem? Solutions avalible for Win 7 ?
I can see an solution on the Up an ready blog regadrs this problem on Win XP x64. What abaout Win 7 ?
Same problem here. Trying to create a working Civil 3D 2013 deployment but it sits at the Setup Initialization window forever. No network log file is ever created, it must not get that far. While I don't see a "Re-create deployment" option in the tools folder of the deploy, I used the "create & modify deployment" shortcut to modify it, however, I had already unchecked the silent install option. I even created the deploy again with the silent option checked, just so I could "modify" the deployment to uncheck it (thinking maybe it's just a bug of some sort). None of that helped and I am still stuck trying to create a working deployment.
Any other ideas?
