Dynamo Package Location

Hello All,

I was wondering if there was a way that i could save all of my packages to a different location. i want to save them on a network drive at my work so anypackages i download can be imported to my coworkers computers. Is this possible. I WOULD LIKE FOR THEM TO BE ABLE TO IMPORT ONE SINGLE FOLDER WITH ALL OF THE NODES IF I CAN!

Thanks ahead of time!

I use the above method, its working for all 15+ users.
What i can think of is

Not all users have the same rights on the network drive?
It is slow when the drive is bigger than 1Tb
Not all users have the same Dynamo version.

Edit:
add known issues

You don’t need to “download” them. They are read from the location set in the settings

To get my Packages I use https://dynamopackages.com/
go to search and download from there
the download comes in with a not very descriptive .zip filename, which i rename asap as i forget which was which :), unpack and copy to the network location.
As you click on the name of the package before downloading you have the option to choose which version you would like and you can read the description of the package
i like it better as the package manager has just a little box where you can read.
Once setup in the network location, start dynamo with the Package Path and it reads all nodes like @Daniel_Hurtubise said

I distribute installations for several machines. All our lab computers for students is rolled out automatically, and this goes for all Autodesk products wheater it is template, content for Revit, or lisp rutines, layer menus for Autocad you name it… and also all packages for Dynamo. For Dynamo we distribute this for +1.3 and +2.0.1 packages.

Besides is there also executables for personal computers, both for employees and students. I also distribute my Orchid package as an executable.

I am making all of them and can only recommend you to learn how to use Inno Setup.

Dynamo is also distributed using Inno Setup :slight_smile:

This can solve any of these kind of problems :slight_smile:
