I have created an Admin Image, and i deployed autocad LT 2012 in my machine using this command line .\AdminImage\setup.exe /W /q /I AdminImage\XXX.ini /language XX-xx

when i launched the application for the first time, it asked me for license activation.

My question is how to autoactivate the license knowing that i will deploy this application for more than 50 machines and i don't want that the window of activationn appear to users

thanks for your answers

Did you run Vendor's EXE and run Create Deployment option? Doing this will give you the opprotunity to go thru the dialogs as if you were installing it, but it will create an MST and AdminImage.ini based on your settings. The MST will have the serial number and Product Key you entered during wizard.

If you have Orca or InstEd, you can view MST and make changes if you need. If you try and edit MST within Installshield or Wise you might corrupt the MST and break the install.


Properties you are looking for within MST:








msi & mst file will be found in AdminImage\x86\acad folder.


I've done alot of reseach on Autocad install, and post it all of it on IT Ninja... http://www.itninja.com/software/autodesk/autocad-2012-english/1-14467

  • You don't mention what licence type you have - if you have stand-alone then they'll need to be individually activated: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/pc/index?id=18270004&siteID=123112
  • I'm using a Stand-Alone licence..So there is no way the activate automatically to licence?
