I want to create a network deployment image which will allow me to also import a set of custom settings (the same as using the Start menu tool) but I am not sure how to go about this?
Can anybody provide a guide if this is possible?
Here is a very basic setup of a deployment of an .arg file:
Thanks David but that is just a profile and not a full import of customisation files. I want to create a deployment which sets the default settings based on an exported set of customisations. Rather then having to install them for each new deployment using the migrate custom settings commands. Is this possible?
I don’t think you can do it via the deployment but couldn’t you setup a deployment install it on 1 pc then customise it as needed then export a named arg file and then get the other systems to load this when they run so that everything is setup as needed?
Please forgive me if I am missing something because I've come back to AutoCAD from using Inventor mostly. Will that process allow me to load all our customisations such as SAP interface menus and icons, other menu tools we have (cuiload), workspace etc?
I am trying to read up on this side of AutoCAD 2011 but it seems quite disjointed to me with the number of variables to manage. Is there some good reading material on what all these options control and can be configured? workspaces, profiles, customisations etc.
I really appreciate the help.
We user the base default installation then customise support paths with menus loaded as an enterprise configuration and appload default custom applications we then save out a custom arg file that we load via a modified shortcut to get the users setup.
We don’t use custom workspace and I’ve never tried it but I’m sure someone else out there has.
I hope some of this helps.
Yeah it's a help, thanks. I need to really read up in more depth on this and start from the begining. I'm trying to pick up a historical installtion deployment that looks to have started with 2006 then to 2009 and now 2011. Maybe I should start with the default install and build up what is required rather than just drag in an exported custimisation file.
