Watching Help menu animations on a 64 bit machine - The Revit Clinic

From: http://revitclinic.typepad.com/my_weblog/2009/12/watching-help-menu-animations-on-a-64-bit-machine.html

If you are running 64 bit Revit and you try to run a video from the Help files, you will notice that it doesn't play. It will prompt you to install Adobe flash, and then the video will not run.

Currently Adobe Flash Player does not support playback in a 64 bit browser. It is possible to run it on 32 bit browsers installed on 64 bit systems, but unfortunately Revit will default to the 64 bit browser in Help. Click here for more information on Adobe's schedule for Flash Player 64 bit support.

So, to view the videos, you can do the following:

  1. Launch the Help menu.
  2. Open the document with the video and select the video link.
  3. Right click inside the dialog and select Jump to URL.
  4. Copy the text from the Current URL dialog.
  5. Launch 32 bit Internet Explorer and paste the contents into the address bar.

Click here to view a short video illustrating this process.

Happy Holidays! :)
