Disable Add-Ins for Revit 2011 Products - The Revit Clinic

Source: http://revitclinic.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/05/disable-addins-for-revit-2011-products.html

There may be an occasion where you want to test Revit 2011 with add-ins disabled.

By default in Revit 2011 products the Add-Ins components have been moved from the Revit.ini file to a separate location. While you can still utilize the Revit.ini for this release, the default location is now listed below.

If you want to test Revit with all add-ins disabled [or selectively disable add-ins] follow the steps below:

1. Close Revit 2011

2. Locate the following folder:

Windows Vista \ Windows 7 - C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Revit\Addins\2011
Windows XP - C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Autodesk\REVIT\Addins\2011

3. Temporarily move the add-in files from the folder above to another location.

4. Launch Revit 2011; add-ins will be disabled.

When testing is complete you can move the add-in files back into the original folder.

There are other approaches to disabling add-ins as well. I've included Jeremy Tammik’s The Building Coder blog below, which is an excellent resource for the Revit API:
