How can I force all users in a domain to load the same add-ins with Inventor Professional 2012?

Hi,

 

I maybe misunderstood, have you deployed the *.addin and the add-in dll for all users?

Hello Xiaodong,

 

I am not sure what you are refering to. When you load Autodesk Inventor, then there is the option in the menu to change which addins are loaded with the application. What I would like to know is how I can force with Group Policy or some other way that all users (in this case students in Grade 11 and 12) load only the addins which I want them to load.

( this is a domain environment with Windows 2003).

Hi,

 

did you mean Addin-Manager dialog? 

 

The loading behavior of any addin is configured by the *.addin file with the two tags:

 

<LoadAutomatically>1</LoadAutomatically>
<UserUnloadable>1</UserUnloadable>

 

So, I think you could just manage these *.addin file to set their <LoadAutomatically> for your uses. i.e. you will need to deploy the  *.addin files for your users.

 

Hope this helps.
