Installation and Configuration

Before you install Revit Structure 2014, close all applications.

Install or Uninstall may fail if content is on a shared network location using a mapped drive

When installing or uninstalling the procedure may fail if content had been redirected to be on a shared network location using a mapped drive. To prevent this error set the User Access Control in Windows Control Panel to Never Notify.

Custom Folder in Deployments

In the Revit Structure 2014 Deployment Wizard the Path for Configurable Folders allows you to specify a custom folder in which to copy support content.

If you specify a folder location that has Read Only permission at the user level according to the Microsoft Windows User Access Control, then Revit Structure may become unstable. To avoid this, ensure that you have Write permission on your Microsoft Windows machine when creating your deployment with the Custom Folder option.

Single Share Folder Option for Deployment Images

When using the Single Shared Folder option to create a deployment image, specify a folder name to avoid creating an invalid deployment image. Do not leave the folder name as <Shared folder path>.

Roaming Profiles in a Networked Environment

It is recommended that Revit Structure is installed from the same deployment when installing to multiple computers in a networked environment. This ensures each user's roaming profile is properly initialized when the user logs into different servers.

If a non-deployment install is utilized to configure multiple servers, each user's roaming profile settings are restored to the default values as the user logs into different servers. To resolve this, use these steps:

The first task you need to complete is to make sure that your computer meets the minimum system requirements. If your system does not meet these requirements, problems can occur, both within Revit Structure and at the operating system level.

Whether your Windows operating system is the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, the version is automatically detected during installation. The appropriate version of Revit Structure is installed. A 64-bit version of Revit Structure cannot be installed on a 32-bit system and vice-versa.

Refer to the hardware and software requirements.
