Musescore Soundfonts SF2 files default user template

• Mar 7, 2023 - 10:27

Sorry this is a windows specific question...
i've downloaded a range of soundfont sf2 files and have stored them locally in a folder on a shared machine so that all users who log in can choose the sounds through the mixer.
the user goes into preferences menu and edits the General > Folders > Soundfonts path to point ot the shared folder. then the user can use the new fonts by selecting them in the mixer.
is there a way to set this for all users so that when a new user starts Musescore for the first time the file
C:\Users\AppData\Roaming\MuseScore\Musescore4.ini file contains the path to the shared fonts. in my case....

i've hunted around but can't find a default template in c:\program files\musescore 4\


i guess maybe there is no way to set the path automatically when installing Musescore4 at scale (other than creating a script to run at first login that creates or edits C:\Users\AppData\Roaming\MuseScore\Musescore4.ini)
i ended up putting the SF2 files on a network shared drive and directing the students to point the SoundsFonts path to that if they wanted enhanced sounds.
there's probably other ways of doing that but....
