Installing plugins unattended



  • Hi!
    Is there a option to install plugins unattended? Using command line? Even setting allowAppDataPlugins.xml some files still needed to put into main directory under Program Files, but usually user (in enterprise environment) does not have rights there. Or should we grant rights for users to NPP main dir? Maybe not good idea? Other option is to find out which files needed to put where and … but so many plugins to find out.
    Any ideas?
    More thanks, DJ.

    No. Other than manually (or using a script) copying DLLs and files into the appropriate location…which is all the PluginManager does.

    This is true although the majority of plugins are perfectly fine using the app data directory.

    That’s completely up to you.
