Title: Overwrite then Restore
Post by: quaziconscience on July 12, 2019, 11:34:04 PM
Anyone know what files are all part of a users configurations?   I'll be overwriting their acad.cui and setting a bunch of variables with lisp but need to be able to restore their settings at any time.

Define "user configuration"?  I would recommend leaving the ACAD.CUIx file alone.  Possibly the full treatment of placing it in a common network location and make it partial to a custom Enterprise CUIx.  Use a per-user custom Main for storing the workspace.

Fastest (but not necessarily best) way of restoring everything is to delete a non-active profile and reload from an ARG file.  That changes nearly everything but all at once (no pick and choose), and does nothing about the workspace unless the Main and/or Enterprise are changed.

Main issue is that one setup will change dozens of variables.  The user needs a way to get back to their own variables.
