I wish this was easier. But the display mode export/import feature didn’t have your application in mind.
Rhino’s display mode settings are stored in the Windows Registry. Specifically, you use 32-bit Rhino 5, you can find them here:
If you use 64-bit Rhino 5, you can find them here:
If I were an administrator who wanted to push these out to end users, I would export one of these keys using REGEDIT.EXE. The one you will need depends on what bitness of Rhino you and your clients use.
Once you have a .REG file, produced by REGEDIT.EXE, you can merge this into another system’s Registry during the login process. I’m going to let you research this because I am sure there are several ways of doing this, with the easiest one being to run REGEDIT.EXE with command line parameters.
Keep in mind that some display modes have references to image files (for background, etc.). So, you will want to make sure the path found in the .REG file matches what the end users will have. Note, .REG files are just text files, so you can view with Notepad if needed.
Hope this helps…
