TechSoft 2D Design CAD/CAM Software
Got a site license for this, and get given the nstallation CD AFTER we have reimaged the entire school (2000+) machines.
So now need to get this onto about 65 machines... There doesnt seem to be any instrucitons about deploying it.
Does anyone use this software, and is there away to deploy it via MSI or something ?

Hi, i have an MSI for it, on the disc there are some MSI installers. You put that in a share and put the .lic file somwhere in the files.
If you can wait until next week i can find out properly if you like?

I use a scirpt to copy the program files to the workstation, but that's because we are using a really vintage old version!

Our version (which looks like 1.21 from the version numbering on the exe) runs fine from a networked share

Ours is deployed via MSI and seems to be OK

Ditto, its one of the few bits of software which deploys easily I'd say!

is it just the \Techsoft 2d Design\New Installation\2D Design V2.msi that I put in the Software Installation Settings in Group policy?
Running that manually presents lots of options but putting it in GP doesnt seem to install it...
Also, how do I deploy the .lic file too ?
Edit, it seems putting the .lic file in with the msi works when doing a manual install.

Which version? Our one came with an MSI.

dunno, latest i guess.. Ive found an msi on the cd, and copied the license file to that folder. Set up a group policy, and applied it to my testbed win7 and xp virtual machines.. but it doesnt seem to install.. on the XP ones the "installing 2d..." flashes up but nothing actually gets installed..

Ver 2.0 will also run fine if you install it to a shared folder.

Thanks, that might just be the most simple solution to get this out there fastest.. Ill test tomorrow

I've got the 2D Design V2.msi, 2ddes.ini and 2ddes.lic file in the same folder (i.e. our GPO deploy folder on the file server) and it deploys fine to XP, Vista and 7. I've edited the save locations in the .ini file to the users home directory

hmm.. ill revisit the folder perms then maybe the system is failing to access it.. what should have read permissions for software deploy?

sorry to drag an old thread up, just to confirm does the ini file need any editing to say where the .lic file is?
