Hi,

First time poster, long time lurker

As the topic says I have an issue with an unattended AutoCAD 2011 install rebooting after installation.

The problem is I'm deploying the package with SCCM and the problem is I need to install a couple of in house plugins afterwards and the reboot interferes with things a bit. If I set to program to Program reboots computer the reboot doesn't always happen so then the program fails.

The command I'm running in SCCM is "x86\AdminImage\Setup.exe" /w /qb /I "x86\AdminImage\Install AutoCAD 2011 BNE (x86).ini" /language en-us

Thanks,
Angus

If you've lurked for a long time, you must surely be aware of the 'Package KB'? Wandering thither brought me to here, whereupon we can surmise that the set-up seems to pass arguments to MSIExec.EXE. So, try adding REBOOT=R ('R' means 'Really Suppress) to your command line.

Some of the other details in the KB may be of interest e.g. in the 'Notes' section, the suppression of the 'AutoDesk Customer Involvement Program' dialog.

TBH I when I searched I clicked on here, I read the info as alternative installation method using the MSI file rather than setup.exe passing the information onto msiexec. I'll give it a whirl tomorrow when I'm back in the office.

Unfortunately due to office politics and organisational structure, other than modifying a few command lines here and there I'm not actually allowed to modify or interfere with the deployments themselves.

Thank you for the info though. And thank you for your help!

I wasn't suggesting that you changed the deployment but pointing out that the EXE seems to take standard WI arguments. Thus your command line could include the REBOOT=R property/value pair.

I know that, When I mentioned modifying the deployment, I was referring to the suppression of the 'AutoDesk Customer Involvement Program', I'm not sure why that wasn't quoted in my original reply to your post.

Also apologies for cross posting, my browser crashed out and I had enough time to hit back and copy my post to my clipboard, and then navigate my way back into the forums. It was completely unintentional, I must've either been navigated my way back into the wrong forum or looking at what had been cached, so apologies (It was about 6pm in my local timezone when I did so, it'd been a long day).
