This article outlines the necessary steps to install packages from VI Package Manager (VIPM) on a computer without internet connection.
Before proceeding, note that a PC with internet access is required.

Note: Any issues related to third-party packages (including broken links) is the responsibility of the third-party package developer.

On your PC with internet access:
  1. In VIPM, right-click the package that you need and select Download... if the option is available. If not, that means you have either downloaded or installed the package already.

Note: If the package contains sub-packages or dependencies, you will need to find and copy those related files from the cache folder as well. Check the summary of contents in your package for reference by either installing or uninstalling the package.



 
  1. Go to <ProgramData>\JKI\VIPM\cache and copy all the .vip files with corresponding package names.


On your PC without internet access:
  1. Copy the corresponding .vip files to this PC.
  2. In VIPM, select File>>Open Package File(s), then browse to all the files you copied and add them for installation.
