Anyone that tries to deploy AutoCAD for MAC in a MAC environment may notice that there is no deployment option in the installer for AutoCAD for MAC.
In order to create an AutoCAD for MAC deployment image on a MAC system, you would need to capture the installation sequence of AutoCAD for MAC, using the Composer provided by Apple.
See the workflow below.
- Capture an install of Autocad 2015 as normal, removing non-relevant files from the Composer capture.
- Now, in the captured directory structure within: /Library/Preferences/ create the following directories:
Note: These two directories should be owned by root and have 777 permissions.
- The installer is then built as a .dmg (not .pkg) and deployed.
