You can use a master image to distribute a multi-seat stand-alone product to multiple computers.
NoteWhen using Norton Ghost, you must use the -ib switch to include the boot sector in your master image. Consult your imaging software for more details on including the boot sector as part of the master image.
Master images should not be created if you have previously run Autodesk products on the master computer. Cleaning the system may be necessary. For more information, see Clean a Master System and Restore the Operating System.
To distribute a multi-seat stand-alone product to multiple computers using a master image
- Create a network deployment for a multi-seat stand-alone product. For more information, see Create an Original Deployment.
- Install the Autodesk product from the deployment onto the master computer.
- On the master computer, create a master image, including the boot sector. Test the product on a machine other than the master computer before distributing the product. Launch the product on the other machine, and then register and activate it. Users have a trial period to register and activate the product on their machines.
- Apply the master image to the target computers.
