Deploy/Push Rhino Settings to Users?

I have been working with IT to push out Rhino settings to all Rhino users in our firm but we are stuck on the best way to do it.

Here is the current process:

  • I took a clean Rhino install and made several changes to the options like - Default file locations and Visual styles.
  • I then copied the %appdata%\McNeel\Rhinoceros\7.0\settings\settings-Scheme__Default.xml to our server.
  • Then we made a bat script that runs on startup that copies that xml file from the server to their machine.

It works great and they have all the correct settings. However, if they make any changes to suit their needs, their changes are deleted each time they log off… because the bat script overwrites it next time they log in. :frowning:

What is the best way to have a company standard push out to everyone? Is there a way to push out these changes once or strategically insert them somehow that is not so hacky?

(I saw this post and it seems to be implying that you can somehow inject/merge a XML file with the content from another???)
