I initially created a group policy as I’ve always done. Set package installation paths, point to the MSIs. Seems like that didn’t work too well. After a gpupdate /force, the workstation will look like it’s installing the software but when you log in and actually try to install it, you’ll get this errror with ACCORE.DLL crashing.
After looking through a lot of different discussions boards and PDF white papers and going through a few trial runs in our lab, AutoCAD 2013 is now installed in my training rooms, pushed automatically via OU association with Group Policy. It was a little bit of a hassle to figure out the various MSI and MST files needed for successful GPO push, but alas, all is well in the universe again
Confirmed my licenses for 3ds max design 2013, and packaged the deployment in my DFS – no errors or failures. The next step was to deploy the software! My philosphy is always to automate as much as possible so I decided to use Group Policy to push the software out. Initially done on my lab, I then applied the GPO to one of my training rooms. EPIC FAILURE! Here’s the error message from the workstation:
Event ID 10005
Product: Autodesk 3ds Max Design 2013 64-bit — 1: 5 2: adlmPITSetProductInformation failed. 3:26
I searched for the solution, including renaming the .pit file from the Program Data directory but it didn’t work! I’ve been working on finding a solution for this so my GPO will push but nothing seems to work! Sounds like I’ll have to start a case with Autodesk!
