Hello There,

    I have been working on Autodesk Autocad 2015 application in my company. I have source media, serial key number as well as silent installation guide. All I need is how to embedded serial key number in my package. I tried to embedded the serial key number in primary msi (Autodesk\AutoCAD_2015_English_Win_64bit_dlm\x64\acad\acad.msi) and command line too.

Command line looks like this:

"path of exe file" /w /q /i"path of ini file" SERIALKEY=xxx-xxxxxxxx /language en-us

but I couldn't able to embedded the serial key. Please give me your thoughts and valueable inputs.


Installation guide which I followed :


Best Regards,
Sri :-)

Does the link work? Yes

Are the instructions therein valid? I have to think so, since the vendor wrote them! 

I was going purely from memory in my original response. I do remember, though, that the creation process is pretty straightforward. Key points:

- Remember to drop down the configuration page for each product that you're going to deploy
- Ensure that your machine is connected to the internet
- Check the check-box that enables the download of Service Pack(s) so that it/they are included in the deployment package.

You need to create a deployment using the main installer on the media as supplied to you.

Note that for stand-alone licenses, users need to activate the license after the application has been installed.
