Revit 2013 service pack 2 solves this problem. Works on my Windows 8 machine correctly after installing service pack 2.

The problem is he is running Windows 8 which .net 4.5 is essential to Windows 8 so you can not remove it, or at least I dont think you can.

I am experiencing the same problem with Revit 2012, after installing Autodesk 2014 Beta Software that includes .net 4.5.


It's terribly annoying to work with this issue, having to cycle through panel titles, tabs and buttons to find the command I need.


Can we expect a solution for Revit 2012 to solve this problem?



Crazy for BIM since 2007...

Massive thanks for the fix, Revit was almost un usable without this service pack. I guess we can expect a few teathing problems when changing to a new OS.


Again , thanks

So far Autodesk only supports 2013 products in Windows 8.


They will have to come out with a patch for 2012 by the time 2014 comes out or we will not be able to use both on the same computer. 


Some of our projects can not be upgraded out of 2012 due to contractual agreements with our partners.

If you are on the Revit 2014 beta, be sure to issue a bug on this.  I already did this, and I also spoke personally to some of the developers at AU about the issue.  I've heard several times from the developers and their management that the issues that have more complaints and that impact the bottom line (theirs and ours) tend to rise to the top of the list.  This definitely qualifies.

We are also experiencing the same "ribbon" issue in Revit MEP 2012 after .NET 4.5 was installed. Forunately, it was only installed on a couple machine vs the whole company. We uninstalled the .NET 4.5 and reinstalled 4.0.


We are a MEP firm and don't always have the ability to upgrade to the next version of Revit on all projects. Our clients sometimes don't have the newest version so we have to have multiple version installed / supported. Currently we have Revit MEP 2011, Revit MEP 2012 and Revit 2013 on the same system. In a couple months we will have a 4th version that we will have to support.


It would be nice if Autodesk did fix the issue by releasing a patch. It sure would make our support lives much easier and and the effort in creating that patch would be GREATLY appreciated!!

Yes you can. We recognize the issue and are working on a fix for Revit 2012.

We hope to issue it in the near future.

Same problem here! MEP 2012 is broken. I'm uninstalling .Net 4.5 right now. I hope it works.
