Revit Globe Link – Adding Newer Versions of Google Earth for Publish Functionality RT @RevitClinic

8 hours ago by Ryan Duell
When using newer versions of Google Earth, and the Revit Subscription Globe Link Add-in, you may have noticed that while you can acquire from Google Earth you cannot publish.
Teresa Martin has a video for this process I wanted to first link below:
Google Earth Pro 6 and Revit 2012 - Fixing the link
I wanted to include the steps I took, for standard Google Earth version and Revit Architecture 2012 in text format for easy reference:
1.  From Google Earth > Help > About Google Earth > locate version number at top.  In this case I have version
2.  Next, open the GEVersions.dat file; for Revit Architecture 2012 it is in the following folder:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Autodesk\Globe Link for Autodesk Revit 2012
3.  Copy & add a line to the bottom for version similar to the image below:
4.  Next you need to find the GUID for this version to add to the brackets; open the Windows Registry Editor [Run > REGEDIT] and navigate to one of the following locations:

64-Bit OS: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\

5.  Search for Google Earth in this folder, and right-click > Export > to easily copy the GUID from the Selected branch line:
6.  Copy & paste the area in brackets back into the GEVersions.dat file so it looks similar to below:
7.  Save and close the GEVersions.dat file, and afterward you should be able to publish from Revit Architecture 2012 to Google Earth.
