How to Activate the Standalone IMAGINiT Utilities Using a Batch File

February 15, 2024 Jeff Lotan

If you are familiar with creating and using batch files, then you can activate / generate the Standalone IMAGINiT Utilities during installation using a batch file.

I add a line or two of code to the existing batch file to install Revit or Civil 3D.

Before we begin we'll need to know a few things.

  1. We need the Authcode.
  2. We'll need to know the location of the "LicenseRequester.exe" that gets installed.

The Authorization Code (authcode) should have been emailed to the person that used to generate the authcode/asset.  The email will also have a link to the download.

The location of the LicenseRequester.exe will be different for each of our Utilities (for Revit, Civil 3D and Vault).  Also, the location for different versions of the Utilities may be different too.  I recommend installing the Utilities you are using on a machine and find the exe file.

Here are some examples for our Utilities for Revit over the years:




Two examples for our Utilities for Civil 3D:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\IMAGINiTUtilsCivil3D.bundle\Contents\
C:\Program Files (x86)\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\IMAGINiTUtilsCivil3D2019.bundle\Contents

Once you locate the LicenseRequester.exe program, we can begin our code.

  1. Copy the correct path for your Utilities to the LicenseRequester.exe into notepad and enclose it in double quotes.
  2. Add a space and paste in the Authcode from the email you received.
  3. Last add a space and add the /silent switch.

The finalized version may look something like this:“C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\IMAGINiT.RevitUtils.bundle\Contents\Utilities \LicenseRequester.exe” LFDYC-364DF-1BQTU-ABBA8 /silent
