Include Service Packs (optional)

During the deployment process, you can choose to include service packs that have been posted for your product.

When you include a service pack, you can also specify how it will be handled. You can choose from the following;

To extract an MSP file from a service pack

  1. Download the service pack from the Autodesk product support site.
  2. Review the service pack Readme file for information about patch usage.
  3. Open a Windows command prompt and enter the patch file name followed by the /e switch and a target file name, such as:

    ProductSP1.exe /e ./ProductSP1.msp

    where <ProductSP1.exe> is the name of the downloaded patch and <ProductSP1.msp> is the name of the extracted file. Using ‘./’ in front of the extraction file name places the extracted file in the same folder as the original executable.
