Deploy Autodesk Products with Integrated Silent Installer
On a yearly basis, we install the Autodesk suite of products to our workstations. The suite includes a deployment tool that can be used to create a silent deployment for individual workstations. The deployment, in this case of the 2014 Building Design Premium suite, for an individual workstation is kicked off by a shortcut with the following target:
"\\Path\Img\Setup.exe" /qb /I \\Path\Img\DeployParameters.ini /language en-us
I would have thought that I could kick this process off via PDQ Deploy by pointing Install File to the setup.exe and including the balance of the link in the Parameters field. When I try to initiate a deployment, however, PDQ Deploy connects but then runs until the process times out.
Further, when starting the deployment manually by double clicking the link, a dialog box appears with installation progress (no need for user input, however). When starting with PDQ Deploy, nothing shows up which makes me believe nothing is being executed.
Could you suggest what I might be missing and how I could kick this off successfully? Thanks in advance!
