Deploying Vim Connect extension

using a script

Vim Connect is Vim’s Chrome extension that enhances Electronic Medical Record (EMR) capabilities for provider organizations.

This guide will explain how to deploy Vim Connect on a single station using a simple command line in CMD.

The script adds a registry value that will trigger Chrome to automatically download and install the Vim Connect extension from the Google Chrome Web Store, for all user profiles.



Installation Steps:

  1. Click the Start Menu
  2. Search for CMD
  3. Right-click CMD and then click Run as administrator
  4. At the CMD window, type the following command:
    reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\Chrome\ExtensionInstallForcelist /v 1 /t REG_SZ /d omnknjekenemjfemddhjojahkpkljpkm /f

    (you may copy this command but please make sure that it is only one line when pasting it)

  5. Press enter. You should see a message stating “the operation completed successfully“.
  6. If you have any open Chrome windows please exit all of them.
  7. Relaunch Chrome, and check that you can see the Vim Connect extension.


If necessary, you can uninstall the extension by opening a CMD window (as described in steps 1-3), and then typing the following command:

reg delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\Chrome\ExtensionInstallForcelist /v 1 /f

* After typing the command, be sure to quit Chrome and relaunch it, if it was opened when you ran the script
