When we build a new computer for a user, that is done at a central location. All software is pre-installed under an administrator’s profile before the user logs on and creates a Window profile. With that said, having the DynamoSettings.xml located inside the user profile is an issue. I don’t have a way to make sure the user has an updated DynamoSettings.xml with the alternative package path(s) when they first run Dynamo.
How is the DynamoSettings.xml file created in the Windows user profile at first run? Is it similar to AutoCAD where files are copied in from the UserDataCache location in Program Files? Does Dynamo have a “UserDataCache” location for populating the Windows user profile? If I can modify the source of the DynamoSettings.xml, the I can make sure all users have the correct package paths out of the gate.
