I'm sorry to report I'm still getting the same error when deploying the x64 version as discribed in the opening post.

Deploying a batchfile through GPO works for me.

 

[code]

if exist "%programfiles%\Autodesk\DWG TrueView 2013\dwgviewr.exe" goto eof

 

start /wait "\\ServerName\Software\AutoCAD Viewer\2013\x64\setup.exe" /q /w /t "\\ServerName\Software\AutoCAD Viewer\2013\x64\setup.ini"

 

:eof

exit

[/code]

 

Good luck.

Ofcourse it will work if I run a bat file wich calls the exe. But then you are missing the whole point of deploying the msi to a workstation.

 

Does anyone of autodesk still reads this topic?

Well, Autodesk doesn't respond that much (eg. http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Installation-Licensing/msi-in-GPO-not-working-quot-Run-Setup-exe-to-in...).

 

For some dark, mysterious reason, it's impossiple to push the msi directly from your GPO without problems (eg. Computer>Policies>Software Settings>Assigned Applications>dwgviewr.msi with or without transform file), so you might as well give up trying & whining, apply a workaround, do the exotic deployment and focus to your end goal: Trueview deployment.

 

I've rewritten my batch, with a little improvement.

 

[code]

:: check for previous installations

if exist "%programfiles%\Autodesk\DWG TrueView 2012\dwgviewr.exe" goto 2012

if exist "%programfiles%\Autodesk\DWG TrueView 2013\dwgviewr.exe" goto eof

 

:2012

:: remove 2012

msiexec /qn /norestart /x "ServerName\Software\AutoCAD Viewer\2012\x64\x64\dwgviewr\dwgviewr.msi"

 

:: setup 2013

msiexec /qn /norestart /i "ServerName\Software\AutoCAD Viewer\2013\x64\x64\dwgviewr\dwgviewr.msi"

 

:eof

exit

[/code]

 

Good luck.

As a staunch supporter of PLEASE HIRE MORE MODERATORS to participate in Autodesk discussion groups, I'll  acknowledge here that the new exe appears to work for 64-bit W7.

 

Good luck with the GPO.
