Does this mean that we will have to uninstall all their AutoCAD installations so that it cascades properly between AutoCAD licenses and Building Design Suite licenses?!

Also, can I now create a deployment for AutoCAD from the Building Design Suite packages? :(


David Lau

You will need to uninstall AutoCAD 2012 and install the AutoCAD 2012 from the Building Design Suite 2012.

We have confirmed this problem and workaround.



do all the suites that come with autocad work this way also?

David Lau

The majority of the cases coming into Product Support have been with Building Design Suite.

It suspect that it only affects Building Design Suite only. We are using this TS as reference:



what about other cascading issues with the with revit suites and the building suites?

David Lau

If you check out TS16981643 and Revit Architecture 2012. It should cascade properly.

There is a known issue with AutoCAD 2011 with Building Design Suite 2012 and Revit Architecture Suite 2012 on the same license server. As a reseller, you should have documentation/solution for this issue.
