We are trying to install pyRevit on several computers in an automated way.
We generally use SCCM for automated software deployments and users have no admin rights on these pc’s so pyRevit cannot be installed in User context.
When we tested the deployment using SCCM, which runs elevated installations in a System context, the program is installed without errors, the pyRevit master folder is created in C:\program files\ but in programs and features it’s not listed, and also the plugin does not start on opening Revit.
We simulated this behavior by running the installer using
PSexec.exe -s -i cmd.exe and run the same command in a system context CMD.
This showed the same behavior as SCCM: the program is installed in c:\program files\ but does not start automatically and is not listed in programs and features.
What is the best way to install the program from SCCM preserving configuration setting such as Extension Search Paths?
Thank you for any help!
We also created a small script to run the pyRevit installer unattended with the command
pyRevit_4.8.8_signed.exe /exenoui /qn and tested this script on a computer with Elevated command prompt. This installed PyRevit without any problems but of course, is not convenient for our scope.
