Other software vendors (ie NORTON) provide patches that can have silent network install through a logon script. You just add a switch to the exe file.
Can Autodesk not provide the same consideration?

Hey Rupert,

What Jerry is telling you is that the version of Install Shield that AutoCAD is using will not support this. This is being looked at for the future, but
it's not available right now.

You talk about Notron and other programs, they had to update there installers to be able to do this. You can also go look at third party solutions like
Microsoft SMS to do the same thing.

Hope this helps.

Bud

What does SMS stand for?

"SMS" Microsoft Systems Management Server.

From the Microsoft web site:
"Software distribution and installation.

Systems Management Server makes it easy to automatically distribute
commercial or internally developed applications, upgrades or fixes, or
virus-checking software to selected personal computers on the local network
and at remote sites. Systems Management Server distributes and installs
software in package form. Packages can be used to install software on client
computers; packages can also install and share software on a network server,
or identify existing software on target computers and collect specified
files."

Sincerely,
