Autodesk Software Deployments & Command line

So you want to Install or uninstall Autodesk Software silently using Command Line or Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM)? Follow the steps below:

A deployment image of an Autodesk software package is created using the installer for that package.

Autodesk Software Package

If you need more information about how to create a deployment package please refer to this article.

Once the deployment is created, it also generates two script files. These files are in .txt format and must be converted to .bat so they can be run in command line.

Deployment

The script file:
“[deploymentname]_SCMM” can be used to silently run a deployment to install the software package.

The script file:
“[deploymentname]_Uninstall” can be used to uninstall any and all components of a software installation.

 The script file:
“[deploymentname]_Uninstall” must be modified to select which components of an installation will be uninstalled.

This is done by removing the "::" characters at the beginning of the "::call :funcUninstall" command line for each product that you want to uninstall.

For additional information, the following article explains how to use the uninstall script that gets created once you create your Autodesk deployment package using Autodesk installation wizard.

Alternatively, If you are just looking to remove one component of an installation the SCCM command line is the same as if you want to uninstall any other product msiexec.exe /x{ProductCode} /quiet 

but you need to find the product code specific to the installed version you have by following this article:

Please keep in mind that this will only delete the core of Revit or AutoCAD and not the material library or other components as every component has a different product code.

Note: I would highly recommend using the script you find in your deployment package (described in part 2 above) but if you prefer the command line please use the following: msiexec.exe/x{ProductCode} /quiet .
