Software Deployment Question
Managed installs of Autodesk viewers - Finish prompt shows before install completed
We are installing the various viewers from Autodesk:
- DWG TrueView
- Inventor View
- Design Review
We want to silently install the software and use the prompting feature during the managed install script, but the Completion prompt shows long before the Autodesk install actually completes. When most setup programs are run from the command prompt you can see the command line does not return to the prompt until the install completes, however Autodesk product setups immediately return to the command prompt as though they were completed even though they are spooling off processes for the install.
For example, if you silently install DWG Trueview with the silent switches:
setup.exe /S /Q /I setup.ini
start /wait setup.exe /S /Q /I setup.ini
Setup will spool off a few msiexec.exe processes and Kace will think that the command was run successfully almost immediately and then pop up the Completed message to the end user.
Does anyone know how to set Autodesk setup to wait for completion before continuing?
