    I extract the .exe package to .msp files and then deploy them with the following command:

    msiexec.exe /p "Autodesk_Revit_2017-x64_SP2.msp" /qn /norestart /log output.log /quiet

    Rudy do you have an example for the exe files you get from Autodesk? I'm new to this scripting thing.

    Hey Darren, 

    There are multiple ways of downloading Autodesk programs from the manage.autodesk.com site. Always use the browser download, this will give you a .exe 

    Then extract the .exe file to msp with the following command: 

    <local_drive:>\<patch_name>.exe /e <local_drive:>\<patch_name>.msp

    Then you can deploy it like a normal MSI file:

    msiexec.exe /p "Autodesk_Revit_2017-x64_SP2.msp" /qn /norestart /log output.log /quiet

    If you have any futher questions please let me known.

    Rudy having trouble with the conversion exe to msp.

    K:\Install\2017\Addins\Revit_WorksharingMonitor_2017_dlm.sfx.exe /e K:\Install\2017\Addins\Revit_WorksharingMonitor_2017_dlm.sfx.msp

    Is this used with the msiexec.exe?

    msiexec.exe /p "K:\Install\2017\Addins\Revit_WorksharingMonitor_2017_dlm.sfx.exe" /e "K:\Install\2017\Addins\Revit_WorksharingMonitor_2017_dlm.sfx.msp"

    There are different types of installations for autodesk product

    1. The application install, which comes with a deployment creator builtin the setup. 
    2. The application updates, that you can extract to a msp file and deploy as mentioned earlier
    3. The add-on web install, (also used for Revit 2017.1 update), these are really annoying, you will have to run the webinstall on a workstation, during the install you will find a Autodesk folder on the systemdrive, in that folder you will find a setup.exe. If you move the downloaded file it will trow an error. 
    4. The self extracting add-ons / updates. When you start the download it will first extract itself to c:\autodesk. In this folder you will find a folder x86 and x64 with a MSI file in one of the subfolder. Use that MSI file for the deployment.

    In this case it's option 4, when you start the install it self extracts to c:\Autodesk\. Navigate to C:\Autodesk\Revit_WorksharingMonitor_2017_dlm\x64\RWSM there you will find a RWSM.msi file which you can use for the deployment.

    Make sure that you include the entire directory during the deployment
