Adding to a Revit Deployment

Ideate Software products can be added to a Revit deployment using the "Include Additional Software" screen. 
  1. Run the Revit Deployment Creation. 
  2. Follow the on-screen instructions to create the deployment until you arrive at the screen prompting to Include Additional Software. 
  3. Click the Add button and browse to the appropriate MSI 
  4. Enter the appropriate command line parameters. Note: This method uses command line parameters but without the switches. For example, IDEATE_LICENSE_TYPE=network [email protected] specifies Ideate Explorer to be installed as network looking for a license to ‘yourservername’ . 
  5. Continue through the deployment creation process, click Create when finished.  


Ideate Software Revit deployment dialog

The software will install along with Revit when this deployment is run, using the specified license type. This same process can be used to update the Ideate Software to the latest point release.

Note: Automatic activation of standalone licenses is not supported, the activation process will need to be completed by the user within Revit. Network licensed products will work without needing further steps from the end user, provided the license server is running correctly.

If the target PC already has a configured license of the same Ideate Software product and version, the existing license configuration will not be overwritten. This is to protect already activated standalone serial numbers. If you would like to change the license type or server name in bulk, the process is described here.
