AutoCAD & AutoDesk serial number reporting using SCCM 2012

Autodesk AutoCAD Logo

This step by step guide will show you how to setup your System Center 2012 Configuration Manager to report to you the Autodesk software that is installed on your clients machines but will also give you the serial numbers for the software and what software package is installed. (If you find the pictures hard to see, you can click on them to enlarge them).

To do this, you will first need to download the Autodesk Serial Number package that I have created.

Download

Download Autodesk 2019 MOF Script

Update

There is now an updated version of the CI code and report which is available here:

Autodesk Serial Number Reporting v4

2019 Version

Note that we now recommend a new way of carrying this one, you can view the new guide here.

Once you have this package, make sure you have unzipped it ready to use.

You are now ready to start configuring your Configuration Manager.
