Revit Services & Support - Switch between local and online help documentation for Revit 2011 products

Published date: 2010-Apr-14
ID: TS14994272

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

Issue

You would like to know if you can set the default location for Revit® 2011 help documentation.

Solution

There are two options for specifying where Revit 2011 products will look for help documentation. You can customize the location by adding the following information to the Revit.ini file.

The Revit.ini file is located in the following folder:

  • 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

Add the following 3 lines to the bottom of the Revit.ini file:

[Documentation]
UseHelpServer=1
HelpBrowser=0

  • To specify online help documentation use UseHelpServer=1
  • To specify local help documentation use UseHelpServer=0

Additionally you can further customize which web browser help documentation will launch with:

  • To specify the system default browser use HelpBrowser=0
  • To specify Microsoft Internet Explorer® use HelpBrowser=1
