try turning off hardware acceleration in revit
that graphics card is probably whats killing you
get a dedicated graphics card either from amd/ati or nvidia
but how do I downgrade to 32 bit?
And is there any other way in which I can try to halt the automated installation process and manually command it to setup the 32 bit version instead?
no you can't
you can try hacking the installer but i wouldn't recommend doing this because that may cause more issues
downgrade to 32 bit windows if you want to install the 32 bit version
i wouldn't recommend this
easiest is to invest into upgrading your machine
Thanks for the recommendation.
Problem is it's a laptop and it can't be upgraded to the requirements of the 64 bit version of Revit.
Another problem is that I've already installed it on this laptop and the license only allows me to set it up on one computer
Thanks for your concern
How about implementing an online conversion tool for downgrading files??? Or, how about making an update for us Revit users that will implement a downgrading feature into Revit itself? You know how much Revit costs, you must know how expensive it is to get a mere 1Gig. Dedicated graphics card, while also possibly knowing some computers do not allow for dedicated graphics card upgrades?! Leading to, you must know new computers whether laptops or towers are quite pricey if you want to run the latest Revit software?! $4,500 for a single user license for Revit 2011, now you're charging over $5,500 for the 2013 version and it requires a substantial upgrade to any average computer system. What are you, in bed with these computer companies?!? I know for a fact this isn't the first time people have asked or complained about file user issues. GET WITH THE PROGRAM AUTODESK!!! This is bs..The more I use your software and run into all these fandangled issues, the more I never want to purchase your software ever again.
I now have to start a project I've been working on for quite a few months completely over, as I thought I might upgrade to see if there were any nice new features, or better rendering quakities. Thanks a lot Autodesk, thanks for the for warning before I upgraded and opened my file, and thank you from what I read in this thread to another user for just passing the issue onto the consumer with a comment like, "well, you'll just have to upgrade YOUR system!" Maybe if you refunded half my money I could just go buy a nice new system and purchase some other companies software instead...
Anyway, again thanks, Autodesk is so awesome!
