Navisworks Freedom 2012?

I can see the subscription downloads for the Navisworks 2012 products, but the Freedom download is still providing the 2011 product.  Is this an oversight?  I would like to have the stand-alone Freedom installer ready for distribution soon.

We are aware that the website isn't fully updated yet but give it a few days...

Regarding a standalone Freedom installation, you would be best creating a deployment image from the Simulate installer and when selecting which parts to install, just select Freedom and deselect Simulate (you may want to install the exporters if you have users with AutoCAD, Revit etc installed so they can create NWC files easily). There is no way to do this just from the Freedom installer.

I've also been looking for the 2012 Freedom download.

Luckily we received our 2012 Simulate disks on Subs today, but I dont have the insight to extract the Freedom installation exe from the disk. I would like to post the installation file set on our network; I beleive the measurement tool has been added to the 2012 Freedom release, and this is a feature I know our Engineering staff would benefit greatly from.

Does anyone know how to extract the necessary files from a Simulate disk to do a standalone Freedom installation, or can we expect the 2012 download soon?

That's an embarrassingly obvious solution.

Thanks for the prompt response.

So rather than mess around with trying to extract an MSI from the (eventual) Freedom download for a quiet install, we can use the Simulate Deployment creator to make a bootleg Freedom deployment?  Niiiice...
