How to attach updates to your Autodesk network deployment

Autodesk have changed the method of attaching updates to a network deployment in 2016. Previously updates were added to the deployment for each individual product by merging or appending and was restricted to ONLY service packs, therefore hotfixes were not able to be included

With 2016 the Autodesk Application Manager is used to

  • Update each client with latest service packs/hotfixes
  • Add updates to the network deployment


The steps below describe how to add these updates to a deployment

  1. When the network deployment is complete, click the Add Updates button
