I have followed the notes on how to modify the autocad.msi for a silent install. The only issue I am still having is whith the registration prompt after application is installed.

Does anyone know which registry keys will make this go away? We have looked and have had no luck finding them.

Hey Eric,

It was ages ago I did this one but my notes are pretty good... It was for AutoCAD LT 2002 and it wasn't registry keys that got around activation, here's what I did:

First create an admin install

Then install and activate the product on a clean workstation and take a copy of ..\Program Files\AutoCAD LT 2002\Unlocked\aclt.exe ..\Program Files\AutoCAD LT 2002\Unlocked\aclt2002.cfg and add them to your admin install package in the transform (aclt.exe is already there, just replace the existing file).

There are also propertys and values to add to the property table but I presume you've done that already...

I also had to advertise the product which was a pain - let me know if you are having trouble there.

Hope this helps,
