    Create the deployment then use the following command:

    "{Installer Location}\Setup.exe" /W /qb /I {Installer Location}\3ds Max.ini /language en-us

     

    This worked for me.

    Is this using the setup.ini file?

    it's a file called 3ds Max.ini it should be in the "Img" directory I believe it's genreated when you create the deployment using the Autodesk utility

    And do you run this command using PDQ cmd step or a install step?

    hmmmmm interesting. See whenever I run a cmd command for Maya or 3ds max, it gets stuck. If i run this command manually on the machine it works but then PDQ deployments after that get stuck on queue or preparing.

    how long does it sit for? It's a big deployment so it might take a while. Do you have copy mode as Push or Pull? (I use Push)

    I use pull. When i do it manually on the machine it takes about 7 minutes. The deployment sits for a long time almost 40 minutes and when i abort it i cant deploy any other deployments after

    I would try changing the copy mode to "Push"

    What's the difference here? We use pull for every deployment since all the files and installs are sitting on a server

    The files are sitting on a server in our case also but I've had better luck with the push mode. Perhaps someone from PDQ can advise on the practical differences between the two better than I can, I've just found push to be more reliable.
