As part of my effort to script some common issues and solutions for Revit 2011 products, I've written a script to correct the Revit 2011 Hangs at Splash Screen or Crashes with Unrecoverable Error problem.
The script I've written automates steps 1 and 2 in the post. Step three can be fixed using an existing technical solution we wrote that already had a script for it. Resetting the Autodesk Revit Architecture 2011 user interface.
The script works very similar to the uninstall script, but it only fixes the problem with the WSCommcntr2.exe process, and the corrupt WSCommCntrData.xml file.
This scipt will also work with any Revit 2011 product, just type in the product name (just Architecture, Structure, or MEP) and the script will do the rest with just a little bit of intereaction from you.
Go ahead and Download REVIT 2011- Hang at Splash Screen. Hopefully, it makes fixing this issue a little bit easier.
I'd love to hear your thoughts about this one in the comments.
