In this case, an educational site was installing the Autodesk Design Academy 2013 and the following error came up during the deployment creation:
The copy functions cannot be used.
Failed to copy the following files: E:\3rd Pary
In this case, the solution is easy. The problem was that the deployment was started on a local workstation [Computer A] and was trying to create the deployment over the network on Computer B.
You will need to have the instalaltion media on the actual server [Computer B] and create the deployment on the server [Computer B] using a Windows Remote Desktop Connection on Computer A.
