The normal download link is just a small file that runs locally and then downloads the rest of the application at run time. If you would like to download the entire package including DWG Trueview for later deployment, the direct link is http://download.autodesk.com/akdlm/esd/dlm/designreview/2012/en-us/SetupDesignReview2012_bundle.exe. This is ±662 MB download.

While you are waiting for that to download, take a look at the installation guide for information on silent installs. Read more about Autodesk Design Review and DWG Trueview 2012

Back in August 2008, Robert Krumenacher told us how to perform a silent install of DWG Trueview 2009 and its dependencies with minimal effort.

So I finally got around to messing with DWG Trueview 2010, and the same method does not work. I have learned through and Volker Joseph that it is just not possible to perform a silent (or unattended) install using the .EXE file like we were able to with 2009.

If your machines already include all the dependencies, like .NET 3.5 SP1, etc., then you can deploy the .MSI file itself silently, but if you install the .MSI without all the dependencies, Trueview will not launch.

Without a Net recently published the info necessary to silently deploy Design Review 2010, although it is basically showing you how to install the dependency components individually along with the main application. Based on my tests, it looks like you can simply install the MSI for Design Review on a machine that already has a proper install of Trueview 2010 since the dependencies are already installed.
