New Autodesk Desktop App Rolled Out

Mar 25, 2016 - Autodesk rolled out an update to the Autodesk Desktop App

Along with a recent release of AutoCAD 2017, Autodesk has released a new version update to the Autodesk Desktop app.

The Autodesk Desktop app replaced the old Autodesk Application Manager in Jan/Feb 2016.

Autodesk Desktop now organizes and groups available updates by installed applications.

Unfortunately, you also lose the history of installed updates while gaining non-specific links to generalized Autodesk website resources.

Autodesk Desktop is more aggressive about prompts to the optional Sign In to the Autodesk Cloud.
Sign-in currently gains you no obvious benefits or changes to the Autodesk Desktop interface.

The intial release of the Autodesk Desktop in Jan/Feb also appeared to fix sticky Autodesk ReCap 360 and Autodesk Infraworks 360 update installation issues for IDS 2016 if you have upgraded to Windows 10.
