Everything I've read about this one says it's easy.. but I can't get the bloody thing to work. The closest I've come is when it pops the error:
"Unable to load the specified HEIDI driver module gdi9.hdi"
then
"FATAL ERROR: Can't start display driver".

Does this one require a component to be installed locally?
------------
As an aside:
I wish I could get a forum name on Softgridguru. They don't ever approve my account and sending an email to the admin has proven pointless. Or is it supposed to take 9+ days?

So far I'm leaning toward these theories:
1) I'm wondering if this has to do with DirectX9. Does that have to be installed locally? I'm guessing so... it's just weird that no one has ever reported a problem sequencing this or has brought up Dx9
2) I'm sequencing and testing on VMs. I'm wondering if the VM video driver is messing things up.

If the video driver is in doubt perform a sanity check and manually install the application to verify it works. I haven't touched AutoCAD in ages but delete the exclusion in the sequencer for %USERPROFILE\Local Settings. If that data isn't present AutoCAD will launch but will miss many profile settings.

I should add that the sanity check implies that you are not using the SoftGrid sequencer.

How should .NET be approached? Should it be sequenced or pre-installed? I know the old approach was pre-install, but I'm not sure with 4.2.

To include .NET framework in the sequenced package or not to include? That's the question.

You need to know your environment first. For example, my customer's system baseline includes .NET 1.1 & 2.0 so my sequencer has it installed & I don't need to virtualize it. If you know that your customer's system already have it installed, you can work without it.

Hope that helps.

Thanks guys.

It turns out the target machine needs to have the "Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86)" pre-installed.

I created a Package KB so no one has to go through that again.

I recommend .NET 2.0 and the Microsoft C++ redistributables to be in the base for maximum .NET compatibility with SoftGrid. With that being said SoftGrid is still deficient with .NET in my experience but I've been told 4.5 has many enhancements so I am anxiously awaiting the 4.5 code. Also if you haven't tried 4.5 yet the client and the sequencer will install the C++ redistributable package by default.
