i have a problem while creating a new deployment for NLM ACA 2013 German.
the SP2 won't show up on the download section - see screenshot.
whereby the subscription centre does not offer a MSP file which could be included manually.
many thanks for your suggestions in advance.

I do not recommend installing with the SP included anyway. What is the problem?
thank you for your reply.
we have around 300 staff where we frequently install new PCs & Laptops.
therefore i'd prefer to have a "as complete as possible" deplyoment for installation instead of running a ACA installation plus a SP2 afterwards.
however, the SP2 won't show up in the deployment preparation of a german ACA, only SP1 does.
would you know why?
You can manually download the SP2 and then extract the MSP with the /e switch. Then apply it to your deployment. Just keep in mind that you substantially increase the risk of a 1603 installer error with the service pack deployed at the same time. You also make it impossible to install additional verticals of AutoCAD on the same machine by doing this.
The following distribution method applies only to administrative images created with the Deployment wizard. After you complete these procedures, subsequent deployments of your product will include this Service Pack.
In all cases, append this Service Pack to the deployment. The only time it is appropriate to merge the Service Pack is if you intend to distribute the deployment through a group policy object.
The patch (Service Pack) file that you download contains an MSP (Microsoft Patch) file, which you extract from the executable file using the /e (extract) switch. For an example of the syntax, see step 2, below.
<local_drive:>\<patch_name> /e <local_drive:>\< patch_name>.msp
Note: When the AutoCAD Architecture Service Pack is included in a deployment, the deployment will install the Service Pack without update files for Autodesk Sync.
Note: The extraction of MSP from the service pack executable requires VC++ runtime redistributable 2010. Please make sure it is installed before extracting the MSP file.
Again, I stress that I do not recommend doing this process, but I am providing this information to you as a courtesy.
