I'm using roaming profiles for Autocad 2014 (network deployment) in a computer lab. Things seem to be working but every time Autocad is launched on the computers it has to go through the very long "first run" installation. I have copied the Autodesk folder from %userprofile%\AppData\Local up to the roaming profile on the network but I'm still having this happen. Are there other files/folders that need to be copied to the roaming profile to get past this "first run" operation?

Yes, unfortunately roaming profiles are not compatible with AutoCAD.
AutoCAD writes into appdata local and appdata roaming and also access locations in the user profile folders like my pictures.You can find some details on this in the article linked below.
"To resolve this issue, you need to disable the deletion of locally cached profiles for users who will be running the application."
So the Autodesk solution to the problem of roaming profiles is to not use roaming profiles? Great...
we´ve the same problem over here in an Educational Environment with the roaming profiles of the students, but only with AutoCAD Architecture, and only with version 2015, all other previous versions over the last years since 2010 are starting quick.
