If Dynamo for Revit 2020 updates automatically. e.g. from 2.2 to 2.3. Where will the packages be located after the update? Currently, we have a 2.2 folder at:
For a company-wide rollout, this can become an issue?
Am I missing something?
In the XML file in the same folder, It’s possible to set a custom location pointing towards another packages folder (settings -> manage …) how can I point to a non-username specific folder. %userdata% %userappdata% %username% does not work in the XML file obviously.
The default package folder for Dynamo4Revit will usually be
C:\Users%username%\AppData\Roaming\Dynamo\Dynamo Revit[DynamoVersion] so in your case it is C:\Users%username%\AppData\Roaming\Dynamo\Dynamo Revit\2.3 after Revit2020.2 has been installed. This could become a problem after a company-wide rollout but we could solve this by
copying packages over.
add the legacy pakage path in the new DynamoVersion
I believe in the past, Dynamo team decided to not migrate packages for user for some specific reason.
