Disable ribbon panel parameters

The GENTAB, ATAB, ETAB, HTAB, STAB and FATAB command line parameters adds the possibility to already at install time turn off:

a complete Ribbon Tab (e.g "Naviate")
a Ribbon Panel (e.g "Naviate General - Collaboration")
a Ribbon Panel Command (e.g "Cut Out")
or an individual command on a Pulldown button (e.g "Add Opening" under CutOut)
The parameter values are built up as a list of semicolon separated items:

Panel1[Cmd1,Cmd2,Cmd3];Panel2[Cmd1,Cmd2];Panel3 etc.

Each item is first the panel name, then between brackets a comma-separated list with commands to turn off. Note that:

GENTAB="Collaboration" (without the brackets) will turn off the complete Collaboration panel.

ATAB=* will turn of the complete Architecture Tab.

It is not necessary to write the complete name of the panel and/or command. A freetext match is made to find items to disable. This means that for example:

GENTAB="llab[bcf];Doc"

...is equal to...

GENTAB="Naviate General - Collaboration[BCF Manager];Naviate General - Documentation"

NOTE:

The COMPANY, NAME, EMAIL, PHONE and LANG parameters are, except when updating, mandatory.
The licensing parameters are optional. If no parameter is specified, Trial will be used.
The disable ribbon panel parameters are all optional. If no parameters are specified, all commands are enabled.
The installdir... and install level parameters are optional and only for advanced users who know what they are doing!

Post-install modification of the installed Naviate product

It is possible to modify the installation after the initial installation. If you for instance need to change the license type, or add another country-specific content pack, open up the Windows Add/Remove Programs dialog and select to Modify (Win 7) / Change (Win 10) the desired Naviate product. Step through the installation dialog sequence and adjust the setup as desired.

NOTE:

Modifying the installation implies changing the machine settings and therfore requires administrative user rights.

NOTE:

If you change the file content of the installation, for instance by adding an extra county-specific content pack, Windows Installer will ask for the original installation files.

NOTE:

If you change the license type from local to network and have an activated local license on the workstation, don't forget to return it to the Symetri Naviate license server!

The license system prefers local licenses before network licenses, so even if you change the license type in the setup, the local license will be used as long as it is valid.

Local license return is easily accomplished using the Local License Return function in the Symetri Naviate Start menu.

Scripted updates

Updates are normally downloaded and installed by the user, through the built-in UpdateManager in Naviate. If central administration of updates are preferred instead, follow these steps:

Disable the UpdateManager already at the scripted installation of the Naviate product (se above) using UPDATEMODE=0on the command line to the installer.
Download the update (MSP file) when it is made available on the Naviate Community site. Install it using a script as follows:

msiexec /P “<msp>” /qb REINSTALLMODE=omus REINSTALL=ALL
