I've mentioned this to the point of putting people to sleep. In fact, it might drive someone to the point of a mental breakdown. In any case, I decided to go ahead and upload my compiled MSI package for installing the DirectX components for AutoCAD 2012 which allows you to push it ahead of AutoCAD itself when using SCCM 2007 and not have the deployment installation die and return a bullshit result code. Keep an eye on my downloads page for the file to be posted soon. It will be near the top of the list.
