Autodesk - Autodesk Revit Architecture Services & Support - Revit on Parallels (Mac) with Windows 7 will crash when you click on the Application Menu "R".

Published date: 2010-Apr-15

Applies to:
Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2011
Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2010

Issue

You have configured Parallels on the Mac with Windows 7 x64 and when you click on the "R" to open the Application menu to try to Save a file, an unrecoverable error will occur.

Solution

When Parallels is trying to access a shared drive using Mac OS X Extended, Revit will crash.

  • The default format on the Mac is HFS+ (Mac OS X Extended).
  • The default format on Windows 7 is NTFS.


You will need to change the Shared folders in Parallels so that it is not on the 'local' hard drive (Macintosh HD). This new shared folder location should be formatted as FAT. In this case, you will need an external hard drive or a FAT formatted USB flash drive.
