Deployment and profile setup

202 Views, 2 Replies

Is there any way to add custom profiles into the "Available Profiles List" in the Autocad options through a deployment package? I have our custom profile setup in there currently but would like to add the option for people to get back to the default Autocad profile if need be and don't want them to have to load a .arg file to do it.

I know when you install civil 3d there are a few profiles in the list but how do you populate that list in the deployment setup?

About the closest you can get is to create a bunch of ARG files on your
network and, in the deployment wizard, create a bunch of new desktop icons.
They'll need to use the icons to use a different profile. Once they've used
a desktop icon, that profile will be added you the list.

I execute a lisp function to do that in Acad.lsp by first checking for the profile. And loading the server based arg file if it's not yet in the list.
