Deploying Solidworks 2013 SP4 64-bit release through SCCM 2012 SP1

Has anyone who is deploying the latest Solidworks 2013 SP4 64-bit had any luck with deploying it through SCCM and found the correct installation cmd line ?


I use the following command to install it with:

"sldim\startswinstall.exe" /install


I set the source folder to where I unpacked the admin image.


On a test laptop, it keeps saying in the Software Center "installing" for around 2 hours and then my Solidworks 2013 SP4 package exits with error code 259(attached is the execmgr.log file from the test laptop).




I also have a working Solidworks 2013 SP1 64-bit package in my SCCM environment and I start the installation there with this line:


"64bit/sldim/sldIM.exe" /adminclient /new /source "<\\DFS path\\SolidWorks 2013 SP1.0 64 bit\64bit\AdminDirector.xml"


The source folder location for the SP1 is set to the folder

SolidWorks 2013 SP1.0 64 bit



In the SP4 64-bit release I cant find the AdminDirector.xml file in the unpacked Admin image. Has this been changed in the SP4 release?
