So, you say you've received your disks for Civil 3D 2008. Now when you created your deployment, did you notice that you could wash your car, paint your house, and get a four year degree in the time it took to create it? Well, there seems to be a problem with the deployment for the Civil suite of products (Civil 3D, Civil 3D Land Desktop Companion, and Land Desktop) for 2008. When you create the deployment directly from the DVD, it copies the necessary information multiple times. To get around this hassle, first copy everything to a local drive and then create the deployment from there.

Happy deployments everyone!
