    Could you paste here what command you're trying to run for the installer? Or a screenshot of your PDQ step?

    "\\[server]\shares\Software\_PDQ Deployments\Autodesk\3DS Max 2021\2021_2\image\Installer.exe" -i deploy -q --offline_mode -o "\\[server]\shares\Software\_PDQ Deployments\Autodesk\3DS Max 2021\2021_2\image\Deployment.xml" --manifest "\\[server]\shares\Software\_PDQ Deployments\Autodesk\3DS Max 2021\2021_2\image\{[redacted]}\setup.xml"

    I'm also experiencing this with Autodesk Revit 2021 with their new web deployment download... I haven't messed around with it enough yet but so far just running the command with the -q doesn't work via PDQ it launches the installer.exe but never actually does anything, nothing gets created in %temp% etc...

    So far the only way I found this to work was "including the entire directory" when specifying the batch file. Kind of defeats the purpose, but still works!

    Hmm, thanks for that tip, I'll work on it more tomorrow but that implies it may be an issue with the working/current directory, or some reference back to the directory for reading or writing something... Will update here if I figure it out but that helps at least get it deployed which is easier than logging into hundreds of systems to run it that way.  Thanks :)
