Im deploying autocad Product design suite 2014 using the network deployment, im deploying using sccm , and using the following command 


\Img\Setup.exe /W /q /I Img\AutoDesk 2014.ini /language en-us


Issue i have is that after all the apps installed ( a lot ) , i get desktop shortcuts for all the apps which i dont want, how can i exclude from the package?


Also, how can i exclude Autodesk 360 ? Do i simply remove all entires of it from the root ini file " autodesk 2014.ini " ? see here:

To remove shortcuts, you need to modify or create the deployment by checking it on/off in the options.  Some products can do this and some cannot do this.


For 360,  you can hack the setup.ini file.  I would do this BEFORE your deployment creation in the original setup.ini file.


Please note that some instablity can occur with it disabled.
