In this post, I’m going to go over the deployment of AutoDesk Building Design Suite Premium 2015 using SCCM 2012.
- You’re going to use AutoDesk BDSP setup wizard to create the ‘image’ folder using AutoCAD’s own image building process. This process will allow you to perform a standard, or custom, installation of AutoDesk’s applications and features, so I’m not going into details about this. At the end of this process, AutoDesk’s wizard will create a SMS_SCCM scripts folder which contains text files that will allow you to install and un-install BDSP; we’re going to use these text files for the deployment.
- The SCCM client imposes a folder size on C:\Windows\ccmcache folder, so we’re going to have to use another script to call the installation process scripts created in step 1.
INSTALL.BAT (calls the script created by BDSP in step 1)
REM MAP NETWORK SHARE DRIVE
REM THIS COMMAND ASSUMES THAT THE USER HAS ACCESS TO THIS SHARE
REM ALL USERS SHOULD HAVE READ ACCESS TO THE SHARE
NET USE X: “\\ServerName\LocationOfBDSPfiles” /user:SomeUser SomePassword
REM CHANGE DRIVES
REM INSTALL AUTODESK BUILDING DESIGN SUITE STANDARD 2015
.\Img\Setup.exe /W /q /I Img\AutoDesk BDS Premium 2015.ini /language en-us
REM REMOVE DESKTOP SHORTCUTS
DEL /Q “C:\Users\Public\Desktop\3ds Max Design 2015.lnk”
DEL /Q “C:\Users\Public\Desktop\AutoCAD*.lnk”
DEL /Q “C:\Users\Public\Desktop\Autodesk*.lnk”
DEL /Q “C:\Users\Public\Desktop\Navisworks Simulate 2015.lnk”
DEL /Q “C:\Users\Public\Desktop\Raster Design 2015*.lnk”
DEL /Q “C:\Users\Public\Desktop\Revit 2015.lnk”
REM CHANGE BACK TO C: DRIVE
REM REMOVE NETWORK SHARE DRIVE
NET USE X: /DEL
I use the previous script in SCCM to create the deployment package.
Here’s what I use for a Detection Method, basically I’m looking for BDSP executable files on the target computer.
This process works well for my environment.
Make a note that this installation may take hours (2-4)…
