Preparing Clients for Command-Line Installation from an Administrative Image

After creating the administrative image and before notifying clients, you must install Microsoft Windows components that cannot be installed by administrative images created using the command line or Microsoft Active Directory.

Installing these Windows components manually is required only if you are installing from an administrative image using the command line or through Microsoft Active Directory. If you use SOLIDWORKS Installation Manager to create and install the administrative image, these Windows components are installed automatically.
Here is a summary of the files required by SOLIDWORKS in the Windows components:
Windows Performance Toolkit:  
Visual C++ 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2015 Redistributable Package Contains runtime components for Microsoft Visual C++.
The 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2015 versions must be installed.
Visual Basic for Applications 7.1 Provides support for Visual Basic macros.
Visual Studio Tools for Application 2005 Contains a tool set supporting Visual Studio 2005 applications.
As of SOLIDWORKS 2013, installing Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for Applications (VSTA) is optional.

VSTA 2005 is dependent on Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 being installed on your computer.

For Windows 7 and later, .NET Framework is a feature of the operating system.

If you need to install .NET Framework 3.5, it is available on your Windows media and on the internet. If you cannot locate your Windows media, do not have an internet connection, or do not have permission to install Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 on your computer, contact your Administrator for assistance.

Visual Studio Tools for Application 2015 Optional. Contains a tool set supporting Visual Studio 2015 applications.
Visual Studio Remote Debugger Provides a debugging environment for 64-bit operating systems.
.NET Framework 4.6.2 Contains the common language runtime and .NET Framework components that are necessary to run .NET Framework 4.6.2 applications.
Bonjour service for Windows Provides the ability to discover services on a local area network.
Visual C++ Redistributable Package and .NET Framework 4.6.2 are required for all SOLIDWORKS products, not just the core SOLIDWORKS product.

These components must be included in subdirectories of the administrative image directory.
