Network License Administration

Network Deployment

A deployment provides an efficient way to install one or more Autodesk products with a standard configuration on multiple computers. The files required for the installation process are stored on the network, in an administrative image, in a folder to which all users have shared access. To install the products, users navigate to the deployment folder and double-click an installer shortcut (.LNK file).

Alternative Distribution Methods

In addition to standard deployments, you can use the following alternative methods of distributing Autodesk programs on Windows platforms:

Licensing Set-Up & Management

A network license allows a number of users on the same TCP/IP network to share access to product licenses. The Network License Manager (NLM), installed on one or more servers, controls the distribution of licenses to users.
