There’s a new tool around called eaLauncher.
Once registered, EA Project files (*.eap) open with this application. It lets you enable/disable EA-Plugins before the Application starts.
Installation is quite simple:
run the exe from anywhere on your computer and click “register”. next time you start an eap-file, while pressing the <shift> key, the dialog will open up.
otherwise the files will be started normally.
>>> eaLauncher v0.5.3 <<< (new version from 2010-06-01)
>>> eaLauncher v0.5.4 <<< (new version from 2010-06-02)
if this app doesn’t match your requirements, start it for one last time, and click “unregister”. now feel free to delete it.
Note 1: please do not move the eaLauncher.exe after you have clicked “register”. Unregister first, move the exe, then click “register” again.
Note 2: further information is provided in the readme file of version 0.5.4
- any Enterprise Architect version
- .NET Framework 2.0
NEW 0.5.3: flag DisplayOnShiftKeyOnly: if set to false, eaLauncher Dialog will shows up always
NEW 0.5.4: flag CloseToTray: minimize Launcher to system Tray instead of closing
Comes in very handy when developing addins.
Since EA version 9 you can also register your add-in in the HKLM i.s.o. the HKCU, but of course the EA launcher doesn’t take these into account yet.
Could you update the EA Launcher to look at the keys in HKLM as well?
Because of the pingback, I noticed your request from 2011.
As far as I can see from the code, LocalMachine is supported in 0.5.4.
( whatever this veeery late response is for … 🙂 )
