Revit Services & Support - Revit 2011 products hang when creating or opening a project

Published date: 2010-Apr-22
ID: TS15040187

Applies to:
Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2011
Autodesk® Revit® MEP 2011
Autodesk® Revit® Structure 2011

Issue

After launching Revit® 2011 when you attempt to create a new project or open an existing project Revit will hang.

Solution

The cause of the hang may be a conflict with the ArchVision® Content Manager Location. By default the ArchVision Content Manager is set to network with an address and port of 127.0.0.1 \ 14931.

If set to local, and an executable location is not defined, Revit 2011 products may hang when opening or creating projects until the RPC Content Client dialog below is dismissed:

To reset the content location to the default network settings:

If you can open Revit:

  1. R > Options > Rendering.
  2. Set the ArchVision Contnt Manager Location > Network.
  3. Set Address > 127.0.0.1
  4. Set Port > 14931

If you cannot open Revit:

  1. Open the Revit.ini file. The Revit.ini file is located in the following folder locations:
    • Autodesk Revit Architecture 2011
    C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Revit Architecture 2011\Program
    • Autodesk Revit Structure 2011
    C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Revit Structure 2011\Program
    • Autodesk Revit MEP 2011
    C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Revit MEP 2011\Program
  2. Locate the following lines in the Revit.ini:
    [ACMSettings]
    ACMOnNetwork=
    ACMNetworkPort=
  3. Modify the lines to match below:
    [ACMSettings]
    ACMOnNetwork=1
    ACMNetworkPort=14931
  4. Save the Revit.ini file.
  5. Launch Revit.
