Free Scripts to Deactivate and Activate All Revit Addins

I love it when people take something I hacked together and make it even better! A while ago I posted a script to disable all Revit addins, and recently Thomas Vogt sent me some much improved versions.

  • Deactivate with Teilnehmer08_1_RevitAddonsDeaktivierenPowerShell.ps1
  • Activate with Teilnehmer08_2_RevitAddonsAktivierenPowerShell.ps1

 

You can download a ZIP file containing the Powershell scripts here:

Addin_Activate_Deactivate_2017-2020

 

Disclaimers (use at your own risk etc) and notes on how to use the scripts are as per previous post.

 

Here is the note from Thomas:

Hi Luke,
I have used your script from https://wrw.is/script-to-disable-all-revit-addins/ and I have adjusted it a bit. I have local users without admin rights (training center computers), so I go to the users computer, open the file with rightclick > Powershell and the Admin login is shown. I got also some problems with the allusersprofile and the appdata path variable, because as soon as I login as admin, the appdata path is not anymore the user path. Thus I have changed it to the path itself. The last 2 lines help to see the errors.

Thanks for your script, it helped me a lot! My scripts are attached if you want to use it on your blog =)

Thanks to Thomas Vogt for sharing his work on this!

I continued my research, and the tool from Robert Manna is more comfortable. U can run it with admin rights as well and during the selection you have to decide which addins are usre specific and which are for all users (need admin rights) https://ideas.stantec.com/blog/creating-a-safe-mode-for-revit
