If all extensions you disabled are built-in extensions of InDesign (Those extensions displayed in Extension Manager when you launch Extension Manager for the first time), you can copy "C:\Users\<YourUserName>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\InDesign\Version 7.5\<YourLocale>\PlugInConfig.txt" to the corresponding location of other users' computers. <YourLocale> may be "en_US", "fr_FR" or something similar.
If some of extensions you disabled is not built-in extensions, it becomes a little complicated. if you can't find plugin-manager-type="all-users" in their mxi file, you have to delete corresponding mxi file from "C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe InDesign CS5.5\Configuration\Extensions" folder of other users' computer as well.
You should only do it this way in CS5.5 or lower. In Extension Manager CS6, you should create a new extension set, configure this set as you want (uncheck all extensions you want to disable), save and export it to a XML file, copy this XML file to other computers, import it in other computers and make it active extension set.
PERFECT, just what I was looking for....I was wondering if I installed the Extention Manager CS6 but all my other apps are CS5.5 would the CS6 manager work?
Hey all still need help, so I was able to find the PlugInConfig.txt file and saw the results of the exclusions when I opened the test file....for testing I delete a few from the text file went back to manager but it kept those on, I closed manager thinking it would put them back on the text file but it did not...so that does not seem correct to me?
I went ahead and took the PlugInConfig.txt file and moved it to my desktop, launched the manager but all the extensions were still on, I would have thought by removing the PlugInConfig.txt file it would put the extensions to their original state. As more testing I took the PlugInConfig.txt and put n on my test but nothing happened, I have doing all kinds of testing to see how this is writing to the manager but can’t seem to find that info...any advice would be great...
Sorry all, got it figured out. Had to make my test user as a local admin...
No. Extension Manager CS6 only manages extensions for CS6 applications.
You shouldn't edit PluginConfig.txt manually. When you enable/disable/remove InDesign extensions, Extension Manager will modify this file.
