If you have encountered a "Unspecified error" when attempting to edit a
group, saving a view, group or schedule from the project browser, starting a
project without using a template or if you have received a "Failed to Open"
message when attempting to open a Revit 8.1 (or earlier version) file in
Revit 9.0, 9.1, or 2008, please look at the following solution for a
workaround to the issue:

I am happy to announce that Autodesk has fixed the “Y2K8 bug”!

We just posted a new build (20080101_2345) of Revit Architecture 2008, Revit Structure 2008 and Revit MEP 2008 that fixes the problem. It is still considered Web Update #3 because replacing the existing file was the fastest method of delivering it to the public. Therefore, the executable file names are the same as the previous build (20071109_2345).

We have updated the Web Update Enhancement Lists to add the following items:

- Improves stability when editing groups, saving views/groups to the library or creating a new project with template set to “None”.

- Improves stability when upgrading or linking a project from Autodesk Revit Building 8.1/Revit Structure 2 or older.

I would also like to inform everyone that we are only releasing this fix in the English version. Because of the time necessary to localize the update for the other languages, it would not be ready before February 1, 2008 when the problem will go away.

The Web Updates can be downloaded by going to:

RAC: www.autodesk.com/revitarchitecture-download
RST: www.autodesk.com/revitstructure-downloads
RME: www.autodesk.com/revitmep-download

Thanks to everyone for their patience while we work through this problem.
