Well, basically there has been an alternative recipe for replacing the Autodesk DWG Trueview application. This recipe have been using freely available components available from Autodesk and is fully functional.
Now, DWG Trueview 2010 was released (and I believe Autodesk is updating all their softwares) I wanted to perform this one with a successfull sequencing.
Old discussions can be found here;
And here comes the recipe;
App-V Sequencer 4.5 RTM
Todo before you sequence, install the following;
Visual C++ 2008 SP1
.NET Framework 3.5 SP1 + Family update
MS XML 6.0
DirectX (available via the installation image Autodesk\DWGTrueViewx86InstallImage\support\DirectX)
From options, remove these exclusions;
%USERSPROFILE%\local settings, %USERSPROFILE%\local settings\appdata
Recommend resolution is 1024×768
Then begin the sequencing;
Deselect desktop shortcut
Redirect installation to asset dir
Review help file
I didn’t start the program, and removed anything that didn’t have a file-association tied to it when the sequencing was finished
Following OSDs should be created;
Autocad component (renamed from Autocad component (1), the “original” one i removed)
Autocad DWG Launcher
Autodesk hardcopy componenent
During application launching I started them all, however most of them had to be terminated….
Target machine is a WinXP SP2 with a 4.5 RTM client and all the above prereqs (of course…)
