Description

Description

Many organizations do not have standard methods of deploying AutoCAD software, and consequently spend a significant amount of time and energy trying to make sure all users are configured to company standards. Even organizations that do have some standard methodologies in place should review their practices in an effort to improve. Are you struggling with the installation, configuration, and management of multiple AutoCAD software users, even in multiple offices? Learn how to use your common network to store minimal sets of configuration files and automatically push your company standards out at application startup, while still enabling users to keep many of their own custom settings.
