Network/Automated Deployment of Bluebeam Software

Bluebeam Pushbutton Plus, Bluebeam Lite


Network deployment offers Administrators the flexibility to silently install Pushbutton Plus across enterprise computers in an automated fashion. A special build of Pushbutton Plus is available by clicking: http://www.bluebeam.com/bbnetdeploy

The same installation file is used for Bluebeam Lite, Pushbutton Plus for AutoCAD and Pushbutton Plus for SolidWorks.

MORE INFORMATION

The steps below should be run as Administrator. This procedure has been tested in the Windows 2000 and Windows XP environments. The target computers should have access to the Internet to complete the automated authorization process.

Before the Bluebeam Software can be deployed, the Windows Installer v 3.1 and Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0 need to reside on the target computer. Steps 2 and Step 3 below provide instructions for running these installs.

Step 1. Setup

It is suggested that you copy the files from this CD to a location where the below programs can be accessed by the deployment software. For the purpose of this example, we will place these files on an example network drive: g:\bb

Step 2. Run the Windows 3.1 Installer

Included on the Network Deploy CD/download is the Windows Installer 3.1 executable “WindowsInstaller-KB893803-v2-x86.exe.” Issue the following command to see the options available for executing.

WindowsInstaller-KB893803-v2-x86.exe /help

In order to perform a silent install, it is recommended that you run the installer using the following command:

WindowsInstaller-KB893803-v2-x86.exe /quiet

You can force a reboot after the install is complete by using the following command line:

WindowsInstaller-KB893803-v2-x86.exe /quiet /forcerestart

Step 3. Install the Microsoft .NET 2.0 Framework

A prerequisite for Pushbutton Plus is the Microsoft .NET Framework, version 2.0 installed on the target computer. The network deploy contains the Microsoft .NET re-distributable package (dotnetfx.exe). You can run this program in a silent manner using the following method.

Command: dotnetfx

Parameters: /q /c:"install /q"

Sample command line: g:\bb\dotnetfx /q /c:"install /q"

Step 4. Install Bluebeam Software

There are 4 parameters that can be configured (optional):

* SN – Serial Number to use for rolling out the software. This parameter should be used with the PK parameter
* PK – Product Key to use for rolling out the software. This parameter should be used with the SN parameter.
* PS – Page Size to set the default. Valid options are “A4” and “Letter.”
*
NC – Network configuration path. Setting this option enables centralizing in one network location all the Bluebeam settings for your company. Running the setup with the below command parameters performs a silent installation and registration of Pushbutton Plus.

Command: setup
Parameters:/z"/SN:{Serial Number} /PK:{Product Key} /NC:{Network Path}" /s /f1"{dir}\silent.iss"
Note: The Product Key MUST be in uppercase.

Sample Command Lines:

For the examples replace the Serial Number and Product Key with those in your License Key e-mail.
Run a basic silent install:
G:\bb\setup /z"/SN:9999999 /PK:XXXXX-YYYYYYY" /s /f1"g:\bb\silent.iss"
Run a basic silent install and specify A4 as the default page size for the Bluebeam Printer:
G:\bb\setup /z"/SN:9999999 /PK:XXXXX-YYYYYYY /PS:A4" /s /f1"g:\bb\silent.iss"
Run a basic silent install and specify a central location (u:\\bb-config) for Bluebeam settings:
G:\bb\setup /z"/SN:9999999 /PK:XXXXX-YYYYYYY /NC:u:\bb-config" /s /f1"g:\bb\silent.iss"

Step 5. Start AutoCAD/SolidWorks/MS Office on Target Workstation

To verify that the installation has completed successfully, run an installation as a user on the target computer. You should see a temporary message displayed on the workstation, “Authorization successful” indicating that an authorization code has obtained from the Bluebeam Authorization Code servers. The installation is now complete and successful.

Notes for organizations using SMS

If you are performing the install as a user different than the currently logged-in user, you may need to specify the runas command as demonstrated in the below sample:

C:\bb\setup.exe /runas /z"/SN:{your SN} /PK:{Your PK}" /s /f1"C:\bb\silent.iss"
A Package Definition File has been included with the distribution. Please review the file and make any necessary changes for your particular organization.
