Hi There,

I am using script in the policy to install AutoCAD 2020 to our labs. We are using multiuser license so I am using script to enter the server name on the application.

!/bin/sh

postinstall

pathToScript=$0
pathToPackage=$1
targetLocation=$2
targetVolume=$3

Silently install Autodesk AutoCAD 2018

SETUP_DIR="/private/etc/Uni/pkg"
INSTALLER_PKG_1="Install Autodesk AutoCAD 2020 for Mac.pkg"
INSTALLER_PKG_2="AutoCAD_Mac_2020.1.2_Hotfix_Combo.pkg"
TEMPLATE_DIR="/System/Library/User Template/English.lproj"
PROD_ID="0000"
SERIAL_ID="00000999"
REG_FILE=
LIC_SERVER="ServerName"
LIC_DIR="/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/AdskLicensingService/777L1_2020.0.0.F"

if [ -f "$SETUP_DIR/$INSTALLER_PKG_1" ]; then cd "$SETUP_DIR" /usr/sbin/installer -allowUntrusted -pkg "$INSTALLER_PKG_1" -target / /usr/sbin/installer -allowUntrusted -pkg "$INSTALLER_PKG_2" -target /

if [ ! -d "$LIC_DIR" ]; then mkdir -p "$LIC_DIR" if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then echo "ERROR: Create directory failed ... "$LIC_DIR exit 254 fi fi cd "$LIC_DIR" echo "_NETWORK" > LGS.data chmod 777 LGS.data echo "done" > nw.cfg # # Write the license file printf "SERVER $LIC_SERVER 0 USE_SERVER " > licpath.lic

# Copy preference files into system user template directory cd "$SETUP_DIR" cp com.autodesk.admigrator2020.plist "$TEMPLATE_DIR/Library/Preferences" cp com.autodesk.adsklicensingagent.plist "$TEMPLATE_DIR/Library/Preferences" cp com.autodesk.adsso-v2.AdSSO-v2.plist "$TEMPLATE_DIR/Library/Preferences" cp com.autodesk.AutoCAD2020.plist "$TEMPLATE_DIR/Library/Preferences"
else echo "ERROR: Installer not found ... $SETUP_DIR/$INSTALLER_PKG_1"
fi

exit 0 ## Success

exit 1 ## Failure

Also I have plist in /Library/LaunchAgent that copies preferences files to users :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict> <key>Label</key> <string>user.script.AutoCADrunatload</string> <key>Program</key> <string>/private/etc/Uni/pkg/AutoCADPlist2020.sh</string> <key>RunAtLoad</key> <true/> <key>StandardOutPath</key> <string>/tmp/AutoCAD.out</string>
</dict>
</plist>

My problem is AutoCAD installs fine and when the first user login to the computer, following window appears and as soon as user clicks on Muti-User window closes and AutoCAD launches. But when next user logs in to the same computer that window doesn't appears any more and application launches no problems.

Hi @raghdasi I have the install and the licencing working for AutoCAD 2020 but have been unable to get the hotfix to install.

Here is the postinstall script that I am using to get it to install and licence without the popup on first run you are having:

#!/bin/bash

# Install AutoCAD 2020
installer -pkg "Install Autodesk AutoCAD 2020 for Mac.pkg" -target /

# Licence AutoCAD 2020
/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/AdskLicensing/Current/helper/AdskLicensingInstHelper change --prod_key 777L1 --prod_ver 2020.0.0.F --lic_method "NETWORK" --lic_server_type "SINGLE" --lic_servers "serverURL"

if you run:

/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/AdskLicensing/Current/helper/AdskLicensingInstHelper h

you will be able to see the options you have for getting Autodesk products to licences on mac's

I will be giving your way of installing the hotfix a go as i have tried using JamF and by script but not with the -allowUntrusted option in my script.

So far this has also worked for Autodesk Mudbox 2020 as well.

@raghdasi after a bit of work I managed to get the hotfix to install as well here is my working script:

#!/bin/bash

# Install AutoCAD 2020
installer -pkg "Install Autodesk AutoCAD 2020 for Mac.pkg" -target /

# Setup for installing Hotfix Combo
# Open Hotfix Combo up in Suspicious Package https://www.mothersruin.com/software/SuspiciousPackage/
# Look for VerTarget.plist in pkg locate the UpdateVersion and copy that to the bellow var
UpdateVersion="23.1.46.205"
# Make sure it is clean.
if [ -d /private/tmp/_adsk_${UpdateVersion} ]; then
    rm -R /private/tmp/_adsk_${UpdateVersion}
fi
mkdir -p /private/tmp/_adsk_${UpdateVersion}
ln -s /Applications/Autodesk/AutoCAD 2020/AutoCAD 2020.app /private/tmp/_adsk_${UpdateVersion}/acupdt_rone

# Install Hotfix Combo
/usr/sbin/installer -allowUntrusted -verboseR -pkg "AutoCAD_Mac_2020.1.2_Hotfix_Combo.pkg" -target /

# Licence AutoCAD 2020
/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/AdskLicensing/Current/helper/AdskLicensingInstHelper change --prod_key 777L1 --prod_ver 2020.0.0.F --lic_method "NETWORK" --lic_server_type "SINGLE" --lic_servers "serverURL"
