When you create a Deployment Image for MicroStation CONNECT Edition or AECOsim Building Designer CONNECT Edition, the configuration stage of the installation enables the location of the Custom Configuration to be selected in the same way as a manual installation:
This step writes the location of the Custom Configuration, normally on a network share (mapped drive or UNC) into the ConfigurationSetup.cfg that is created during installation, amending the section:
e.g.: as entered above:
Updating the Custom Configuration location can be carried out most simply by timing the change to coincide with an update installation, and when creating a new deployment image set it to the required Custom Configuration location.
Where software management tools are used this may also be the simplest approach for a path change that does not coincide with a version update.
It is also possible to copy an updated ConfigurationSetup.cfg file to machines either manually for small numbers of via a batch file for larger networks
This is similar to a file used for an equivalent purpose in the V8i QuickConfigs.
