Autodesk Exchange Apps for all users

Have you installed an app from Autodesk Exchange Apps and found that it’s only installed for the current user but you want it available for all users logging in on that computer?

Here’s a simple trick that works if you have AutoCAD 2013 or newer.

Normally apps are installed within this folder
%appdata% can be a location like C:\Users\jtb\AppData\Roaming\ but instead of jtb it is the Windows user login name.

The app folder can be named like JTBW-SSMPropEditor.bundle so move this .bundle folder to
(expanded it can be C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins).

After that the plug-in will show up on the Plug-ins tab for all users on that computer.

Note that you can paste a folder path like %programdata%\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins to the File Explorer address field or press Windows+R, paste it and press ok.
