I've downloaded AutoCAD_Civil3D_2013_English_Win_32bit.exe from the subscription centre and created a deployment the same way as I did with earlier releases of Civil. I want to deploy this deployment through GPO and followed the steps discribed here: http://wikihelp.autodesk.com/Alias/enu/2013/Help/0
I've managed to complete step 1: To assign a deployment to a computer
The next step is to add a language pack. I selected AcadLP.msi without any problems and added the first MST located in AdminImage\x86\C3D\C3D-DEPLOYMENTNAME.mst. Now I have to add the 2nd MST located in the Tools folder called gpo.mst. But when I try to add this MST I get an errorbox saying: An error occurred accessing the software installation data in the active directory. See the eventlog for additional details.
If I check my eventlog it says:
Software Installation was unable to generate the script for \\DEPLOYMENTLOCATION\AdminImage\x86\en-us\C3D\Acad
When I open the AcadLP.msi in ORCA and try to add the gpo.mst file it also says the mst can't be applied.
The 3rd step in the deployment through GPO wiki is: To add the product-specific package. This works as I would imagine it would work and can select both mst's needed here without any problems.
Solved! Go to Solution.
We have escalated this case internally, we will check this and get back to you.
Sure, we are testing some work arounds, we will post as soon we have the confirmation.
We have tested this and found a workaround for Civil 3d 2013 and GPO
Unzip the attached file(gpo_civil2013_lp.zip) to the tools folder of the deployment image.
Please use this file (gpo_civil2013_lp.mst) against AcadLP.msi instead of gpo.mst.
Please use the original gpo.mst for C3D-<deploymentname>-for-GPO.msi and C3DPS.msi.
Thanks to "bs" for testing this.
Attached is the LP mst file for ACE2013.
Unzip the attached file(gpo_acade_2013_lp.zip) to the tools folder of the deployment image.
Please use the file (gpo_acde_lp.mst) against AcadELP.msi instead of gpo.mst.
Please use the original gpo.mst for acad-<deploymentname>-for-GPO.msi and AcadEPS.msi
