Hi,

I am currently sequencing Autodesk AutoCAD 2010 and Autodesk AutoCAD Raster Design 2010. I have successfully sequenced AutoCAD 2010, and can deploy it to clients using SCCM 2007 R2 (not streaming; downloading and running locally from client).

I have sequenced AutoCAD Raster Design 2010 and am now trying to use DSC to create a dependency on AutoCAD 2010, but I'm not sure what the correct process is to do it.

I have tried copying the Codebase tag from the AutoCAD 2010 OSD from my distribution point (after it has been modified by SCCM) and adding it to my AutoCAD Raster Design 2010 OSD like so:

OSD for file AutoCAD Raster Design 2010 using RTSPS path to file (default)

<CODEBASE HREF="RTSPS://%SFT_SOFTGRIDSERVER%:322/MSP00153.sft" GUID="3830C4DC-317F-4CA7-8DF1-C8FE842E76F3" PARAMETERS="/LD &quot;%SFT_MNT%\RA2010\AeciUi51.arx&quot;" FILENAME="%CSIDL_PROGRAM_FILES%\AutoCAD 2010\acad.exe" SYSGUARDFILE="RA2010\osguard.cp" SIZE="281588057"/>
<VIRTUALENV TERMINATECHILDREN="TRUE">
<ENVLIST>
<ENVIRONMENT VARIABLE="PATH">%PATH%;%SFT_MNT%\RA2010\;</ENVIRONMENT>
</ENVLIST>
<DEPENDENCIES>
<CODEBASE HREF="RTSPS://%SFT_SOFTGRIDSERVER%:322/MSP00152.sft" GUID="ED00F96E-087C-4A8E-9D4D-7A722C72AC3E" PARAMETERS="" FILENAME="AC2010\acad.exe" SYSGUARDFILE="AC2010\osguard.cp" SIZE="1395436766" MANDATORY="TRUE"/>
</DEPENDENCIES>
</VIRTUALENV>


That failed to work, so I tried using the local path to the AutoCAD 2010 SFT like so, but this fails to work as well.

OSD file for AutoCAD Raster Design 2010 using local path to file
<CODEBASE HREF="RTSPS://%SFT_SOFTGRIDSERVER%:322/MSP00153.sft" GUID="3830C4DC-317F-4CA7-8DF1-C8FE842E76F3" PARAMETERS="/LD &quot;%SFT_MNT%\RA2010\AeciUi51.arx&quot;" FILENAME="%CSIDL_PROGRAM_FILES%\AutoCAD 2010\acad.exe" SYSGUARDFILE="RA2010\osguard.cp" SIZE="281588057"/>
<VIRTUALENV TERMINATECHILDREN="TRUE">
<ENVLIST>
<ENVIRONMENT VARIABLE="PATH">%PATH%;%SFT_MNT%\RA2010\;</ENVIRONMENT>
</ENVLIST>
<DEPENDENCIES>
<CODEBASE HREF="FILE://C:/Windows/SysWOW64/CCM/Cache/MSP00152.1.System/MSP00152.sft" GUID="ED00F96E-087C-4A8E-9D4D-7A722C72AC3E" PARAMETERS="" FILENAME="AC2010\acad.exe" SYSGUARDFILE="AC2010\osguard.cp" SIZE="1395436766"/>
</DEPENDENCIES>
</VIRTUALENV>


In both cases the error returned is: The system cannot find the file specified. Error code: 4605F3-1F701939-00000002

Has anyone successfully used DSC in an environment running SCCM 2007 R2? I've searched high and low and cannot find any resources that describe how to do it. According to the Microsoft App-V 4.6/SCCM 2007 R2 whitepaper it is possible, but it only refers to the Microsoft App-V 4.6 Sequencing Guide which only describes how to do it in a traditional App-V environment (running SoftGrid server).

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
CS.

I have managed to get AutoCAD Raster Design 2010 working by updating the FILENAME parameter of my primary applications OSD. It was "%CSIDL_PROGRAM_FILES%\AutoCAD 2010\acad.exe", changing it to "%SFT_MNT%\AC2010\acad.exe" works. I am unsure as to how it was set to that value during the sequencing, as the application ran successful when testing inside the sequencer.

Charlie,

You know there's a tool from Microsoft that does all this for you right? It's available here.

I know it's handy to know how to do it manually, but don't make it hard for yourself [:D]

Hope this helps,

Thanks Dunnpy, I have actually used the Microsoft DSC tool before, but I find it quicker to just copy/paste between the two OSD's

Cheers,

Just using the code is faster indeed, if you don't forget the code.... Anyways, bookmark this page if you don't want to use the tool: http://blogs.technet.com/b/appv/archive/2008/09/24/how-to-dynamically-suite-two-application-packages-using-app-v-4-5-and-dsc.aspx
