Update: I have also Zipped all the install files and then use the command \AdminImage\setup.exe /I \AdminImage\AutoCAD2012.ini /language en-us to deploy from KACE.

The Notification window appears from KACE that an app will be install, then the files are extracted on the User's system, finally the window disappears. There is no error, but the app does not install.

Checked logs under Event viewer and nothing is recorded. Checked the log file in the deployment folder and nothing is recorded.

Please help with suggestions on what maybe the cause of it not deploying properrly from KACE1000.

Prior notes: I have tried pushing from KACE1000 AutoCAD2012 Deployment packaged with it's own Autodesk's deployment tool. I am using this command: \AdminImage\setup.exe /I \AdminImage\AutoCAD2012.ini /language en-us

Win 7 Pro 64 SP1
Latest Updates applied as of today 09/29/11

After KACE downloads the file Setup.exe to C:\Program Files (x86)\KACE\KBOX\downloads, it tries to execute. I get an error "Can't find setupUi.dll!"

I've checked the setup folder and it is there. The ini tells where to find it also. I am able to install it fine after creating the deployment on the machine using the same command (shortcut it provides for the user). It just bombs when pushed through Kace.

I have recreated the package once again with AutoCAD deployment tool on a freshly imaged system, still same error. I have even tried deploying to an XP Pro SP2, no difference. I've checked in the Appdeploy Package KB under AutoCad 2012x and tried their commands. Also checked on Autodesk Network Administrator Guide for their suggestions and the forum to see if anyone has encountered this error: "Can't find setupUi.dll!"
No luck.....

Has anyone encounter this issue with AutoCAD2012 deployment pushed from Kace?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I just happen to be working on 2011 and had a similar problem. I would bet its because of long file names. You may want to extract the install to the c:\[Files] and run the install from there.

FYI, this is the AppDeploy forum and not the Dell Kace. You may want to to try reposting there for a better answer.

Actually KACE takes me to AppDeploy forums. I guess this forum is related to KACE also.

About copying the install to the local computer first, KACE actually downloads the setup and all files first to the user's computer and then launches the executable.

This time after Kace downloads the zip and expands the files to execute the setup.exe on the user's computer, there is no error. Instead the KACE Install prompt window appears and then closes. So now I am thinking there may be a switch missing in the command line. Still stumped....

I am getting the same thing as you are above. I am now trying the net use command to run it from the network and it installs.

Try putting a "/W' straight after setup.exe to force the original installer to wait until it is installed completely before exiting. We do this with 2011 and it work great.

\AdminImage\setup.exe /W /I \AdminImage\AutoCAD2012.ini /language en-us
