Deploying plugins company-wide can be a grueling task. We're doing our best to simplify the process. This is why our installer now supports installation time parameters. You can set them up during your deploy process or with a simple BAT file created in the same folder as the installer, like the below:
msiexec /i "%~dp0Toolbox.msi" REVIT_TAB=<--YOUR COMPANY ACRONYM--> REVIT_PANEL=<--A PANEL NAME--> LICENSE_KEY=<--YOUR LICENSE KEY-->
  • msiexec is the standard windows installer command
  • %dp0 is the batch execution shortcut for the active folder
  • each parameter is added as %Parameter Name%=%Desired Value%
  • parameters are separated by space
  • spaces in parameter values are supported, but need to be wrapped in quotes
Parameter Name
Description
REVIT_TAB
The name of the Toolbox tab for all your users. The default value is "Toolbox".
REVIT_PANEL
The name of the default utility panel hosting the standalone tools. The default value is "Utilities".
LICENSE_KEY

The plugin can be installed either per user or per machine. The default is to install it for the current user only. To force a per-machine installation, you will need to provide the following special windows parameters: ISPERMACHINE=1 MSIINSTALLPERUSER={}
