Nearly all Autodesk products can be installed via a deployment.
This holds true for Autodesk InfraWorks, although there are a
few key distinctions about how to create a deployment for
InfraWorks versus some other Autodesk products. Backing up a
little bit — a deployment is an efficient way to install
one or more Autodesk products with a standard configuration on
multiple computers. The files required for installation are
stored on a workstation in the network, in a folder from which
the product can be distributed to all workstations. Typically,
this is a task that a Software Administrator will perform.
The main difference for installing InfraWorks to multiple seats
through a deployment is that InfraWorks does not reach out to a
network license server to determine who is licensed.
Instead, InfraWorks communicates with cloud services to
determine if you are entitled to the product once you log in.
Therefore, to create a deployment of InfraWorks, you must
create a multi-seat standalone deployment that does not connect
to a license server but instead allows you to push an
installation package out to multiple machines.
