Project navigator continuously loading.

In my office of about 3 computers and over the course of about a year and a half we have been experiencing a problem with project navigator. When opening ACAD MEP or changing projects about 60% of the time it gets hung up and the load bar perpetually loads over and over again. If just left to run it takes 5-10 mins before loading. We contact ed autodesk and they did not find a fix for this problem and I thought autocad mep 2014 would fix the problem but it still exist. Please I need this to go away. my previous case number for this problem is CaseNo:07828454.

Leslie - We've been battling with this issue for years now (even today) and Autodesk/our local reseller have never been able to resolve it.  Our IT consultants have tried many workarounds on the server, network and workstation side-of-things but nothing helped.  Like you, we've hoped year after year an update would magically fix it.


fyi - For us it all started when we migrated to Windows Server 2011/Server 2008.  Never "looped" before that.  And I've old found one other thread complaining of the same issue and to my knowledge they've never resolved it either.


If you've stumbled on a solution please let me know.

Hi Leslie,


If you change the path to the project, the navigator at startup looking lost path.

Try manually remove all references to the old path of sheets and project properties

Or use the tool - "DTS Converter" >>



Have a look here also >>

Leslie - Did you ever find a solution to your slow loading issues with project navigator?  We haven't and it continues to be a thorn in our side every day.


Please let me know if you discovered a fix or workaround.

All - I stumbled upon the following official posting from Autodesk last week and it has resolved our looping issues.
