Pix4D installation for computer lab

Note: This page describes how to setup Pix4D in a computer lab so that students are not required to sign in when using Pix4D.

Check with the IT department to have them do the following.

  1. While the PC is in a thawed state, open up task scheduler and create a task.
  2. Set the account to use when running the task as the "Users" group
  3. Set a trigger for the task to be run whenever a user logs in to the workstation.
  4. Set the command to be run
    • Browse for pix4dmapper.exe which should end up similar to: "C:\Program Files\Pix4Dmapper\pix4dmapper.exe" including quotations.
  5. Then add the following command line arguments in the Program/script box:
    • -c --email <email> --password <password>
  6. The final result should be a an entry in the Program/script box that looks similar to:
    • "C:\Program Files\Pix4Dmapper\pix4dmapper.exe" -c --email <email> --password <password>
Note: Substitute <email> and <password> with the Pix4D account information

This procedure creates a task to log in to Pix4D which should run every time any user logs in. The task file containing the account user and password itself is protected and unreadable unless a user has local machine admin privileges.
