Deploy Autodesk DWG Trueview 2017 using SCCM

Autodesk AutoCAD Logo

Autodesk DWG Trueview 2017 was released back in March but we have only just got around to deploying it to our System Center Application Catalog for users to install.

The process is pretty simple and the below guide will show you how to add it to your own Application Catalog.

PREREQUISITES

First thing you need to do is to download the 670mb EXE installer from the Autodesk website. You can do this by clicking the download button below and then selecting whether you want the x86 or x64 version.

Download Autodesk DWG Trueview 2017

For the purposes of this guide, we will be using the x64 version. This guide also assume you have good knowledge of SCCM application packaging.

INSTRUCTIONS

Once you have downloaded the EXE file, you should run it on a test machine. This will actually just run through the extraction process and by default will put the installation source files into the following directory:

C:\Autodesk

You can then take these installation source files and copy them to your SCCM source distribution point. You can then create the application using the MSI file that is located in this directory:

“x64\dwgviewer\dwgviewer.msi”

Just remember after you have created the application to change your source path back to the root of the source installation files as it will put your source path as the root of the selected MSI file.

You then need to change the installation program to the following:

setup.exe /w /t /l /q setup.ini

You can then distribute and deploy this application for testing. Once you are happy it is working, you can move it into your production environment.
