Autodesk is now shipping media for its 2013 Suite products on an USB memory stick. All of the products in the suite can be easily installed or deployed with this innovation.
The installer for this year is simple and direct. As in previous years, you must silence any virus checking software while running the Autodesk Installer. Here is our quick and easy guide to using the installer for your Autodesk 2013 Suites.
From the opening screen you can choose a local install (standalone or network), Create a Deployment or Install Tools & Utilities.
At the very bottom of the window are links to on-line help, System Requirements and the Readme files.
I suggest you start your install with checking the System Requirements. They change every year and the graphics card requirements are very specific for effective product operation. To speed your installation you can simply copy the contents of the thumb drive to the local machine and run the installer from there.
When you install locally, the installer will sense any programs that have been installed in the suite and give you important disk space information for your choices on your machine.
At every step of the installation you can Cancel or go Back and the on-line help link is on every window.
To Create a Deployment, you will need to know the information below. It is always best to Browse to your chosen path for images and network log files for accuracy.
The Network License Manager and 3ds Max software developers kit are in the Install Tools & Utilities.
Online product activation is also simplified and if you hit an unexpected turn you can Cancel at any time.
We hope this helps you with your installation process. Studica is a authorized Gold Partner Education Autodesk reseller.
