Yesterday I posted an article on how to silently install Autodesk DWF Viewer 7.0. A similar process is available for Autodesk Design Review 2007. As Autodesk DWF Viewer is free, but Autodesk Design Review 2007 is licensed, there is a little more to the process.
Quality Assurance Engineer, Jason Bull reports that Autodesk Design Review 2007 can be installed silently via the following:
Start /WAIT msiexec /i SetupDesignReview.msi ADSK_DESIGN_REVIEW_SERIAL=999-9999999 ADSK_SILENT_LICENSE=YES /qn /Le c:\DesignReview_install_log.txt
where 999-99999999 should be a valid serial number. The “/Le c:\DesignReview_install_log.txt” is optional and creates a log file which can be useful if things go wrong. If you try the silent install and nothing appears to happen, put this logging switch on and the text file produced can be helpful in finding out what went wrong (usually an invalid serial number).
The silent install process is particularly useful when installing Autodesk Design Review 2007 company-wide network deploy using SMS.
