Autodesk Autocad 2023 Silent install

Autodesk Autocad 2023 Silent install | With versions 2022 and 2023, most Autodesk products use the New Installation Experience aka “ODIS” (see Does my product use the Autodesk New Installation Experience?). These can be installed silently by following the Custom Install package creation steps.

Some additional packages (language packs, updates, additional content, library packs, etc.) also use ODIS however, these are not listed on the Custom Install page. This article explains how these can be silently installed.

Solution:

To silent install, add the -q argument to your script/install command. An example of silent install of Revit 2022 Content package:

RVTCPENU.exe -q
 

Alternatively, you can extract the exe package with a zip manager (e.g. 7Zip) to a location, and then call the Setup.exe with –silent to run it silently with:

Setup.exe –silent

How to install Autodesk Products silently

How to install Autodesk software silently? 

Solution:

To get silent installation done, follow these guidelines:

  • Until Version 2021:

Silent installation for Autodesk software can be done through Windows SCCM (or any other software distribution) by creating a deployment for the software you are wanting to install.

For example, SCCM:
After creating the source directory using the deployment process, create the SCCM software installation package. An SCCM package contains the files and instructions that SCCM uses to distribute the software and advertise the package to users. The deployment process creates the files and instructions, but SCCM must be configured to use these files.
In the created deployment path, a folder named SMS_SCCM scripts is created and there a text file called <Deployment name>.txt. In that file, all command lines are listed to install all components through software distribution and all available parameters.
To create a software installation package using SCCM, refer to the article: How to Create the SCCM Software Installation Package
 

  • Version 2022 and higher(or New Install Framework Revit 2021, Maya 2020, 3ds Max 2021):

In the deployment path, the file Install <deployment name>.bat is created. This Batch file needs to like to run the installation silent:
rem ========== Install the deployment with basic UI ==========
rem “\\<SHARE>\Deployment\image\Installer.exe” -i deploy –offline_mode –ui_mode basic -o …

rem ========== Install the deployment silently ==========
“\\<SHARE>\Deployment\image\Installer.exe” -i deploy –offline_mode -q -o …

rem ========== Uninstall the individual product ==========

rem ========== Uninstall Autodesk Revit 2022
rem “\\<SHARE>\Deployment\image\Installer.exe”
