Any ruling won't mean much now, until it is actually applied repeatedly under real-world situations. It may turn out that it needs further clarification, or is even completely untenable. Kind of like building a nuke - the computer simulations may tell you its going to work, but until you push the button on one thats been built there's no way to be sure you won't get a fizzle instead of a fission.
>>>..."(3) lowers prices for all consumers by spreading costs among a large number of purchasers;"...<<<
That usually means pricing will not sky rocket any faster than it could: anyone who thinks it means prices will drop is not grasping reality too well
anyone catch wind of the new subscription fees and the accompanying policy? pay a 33% increase in subscription fee and if you dont like it, pay 70% of retail upgrade fee if you decide to upgrade, regardless of version.
And now, the subscription fee for a non-suite Revit seat is more than we currently pay for the Revit Architectural Suite.
Spoken like a man who does not have to respond to firm partners with a cost benefit / return on investment assesment of Revit.
And might I add, It might be a lot easier to figure out how to leverage Revit if I didnt get responses like this from Autodesk.
The 'Desker did point out what you are doing/trying is not supported. Not sure what else you expect them to do, or somehow make a different reply? Sometimes the answer really is, "Thats not possible." We all have to live with it.
Ive definitely witnessed enough here to not expect a reply such as, 'Sorry for your difficulties, lets see if we can give this the old college try'
But I could have used more than a single line reply.
Not supported in the sense that the support staff does not invest in resolving issues with Revit and Mac servers, unless it involves LMTools or another Mac compatibile autodesk product... or not supported in the sense that Revit has a known function that is incompatible with writing to Mac Servers.
The rub is, saying its not offiicially supported and then calling that 'Solved!', essentially sabotaging any further discussion. Why wouldnt it be acceptable to leave it 'Unsolved?' on the chance that others may have had luck with similar instances.
As to not completely derail the thread, what is then the benefit for the end user from buying an official channel license, rather than a non supported one ala the Vernor case if this is the type of 'support' offered?
You do realize you are talking to fellow end users, right? Unless it says so in the signature, no one here works with or gets paid by Autodesk to respond or earn a living.
It's funny you think you are the only one that has to work for a living and answer to higher ups
