Installing add ins for all users?

Postby larry mal » Mon Jan 06, 2020 11:12 am

Hello all, thanks for looking at my thread. So, I manage E-views in a classroom environment, and want to be able to install the add-ins so that any student at any time can log in with their domain accounts and see all the add ins. This is all in a Windows 10 based environment.

I have put the add ins into a folder created in the Public Documents folder, for instance, and told E-views that the add-ins are housed there but when a new user logs in E-views does not recognize those changes.

Any advice? I had heard that there was a way to do this.

Thanks and happy new year!

How did you "tell EViews that the add-ins are housed there"?

You just link the pathway to the add ins. By default, it installs it to the \Documents\ folder of the account you are working in, the built in Administrator in my case.

You can change that to be something like C:\Users\Public\Documents, but when a new user logs in, E-views doesn't retain either the add-ins or any knowledge of where they are located.

That “knowledge” is stored in progreg.ini in the EViews ini path. You can point all copies to the same file or copy the file to each machine
