General Installation Concepts
This is a general installation guideline, you may feel free to modify it as you see fit, but the basic concepts are:
  • MSI Enterprise Deployment Installation
    • Configure via command line to import default Reviewer Preferences on install (default bluebeam browser to the plan review overview web page)
    • Configure via command line to prevent automatic installation of plugins for third party software.
  • Post Installation
    • Import user profile via command line (toolsets, views, toolbars, etc).
Example Command Line Installation
In the following examples, the Bluebeam MSI packages, review preferences, and user profiles have been copied to G:\bb.  Replace anything in italics with your information; do not include the {} brackets.

Basic Silent install for idtPlans & Bluebeam Standard - Do not install plugins, specify revu standard, import preferences.
msiexec.exe /i "G:\bb\Bluebeam Revu x64 15.msi" BB_SERIALNUMBER={Your SN} BB_PRODUCTKEY={Your PK} BB_EDITION=0 BB_REVUPREFERENCES="{G:\bb\RevuPreferences.xml}" MBCODE=0 /qn
Post Install - Import user profile
"C:\Program Files\Bluebeam Software\Bluebeam Revu\Revu\Revu.exe" /s /bpximport:"G:\bb\idtPlans.bpx"
/bpxactive:idtPlans /btximport:"G:\bb\idtPlans.btx"
Enterprise Trial Deployment
You can do a net deployment of Bluebeam and run it as a trial.  You just need to use TRIAL as the serial number and leave the PRODUCTKEY blank (just put an equal sign, but nothing after it).
