I am brand new to Revit. I just performed a clean install of Revit Architecture 2013 without changing any options and I can not seem to find any of the families. All I want are the default families that come with the program. The program works great but when I go to say place a door there are no families. I went into the options and checked the default families path which is "ProgamData\Autodesk\RAC 2013\Family Templates\English_I" but there is absolutely nothing located in that folder nor have I been able to located a folder that has anything in it. Any help with getting the program setup properly would be greatly appreciated.

If you go to Control Panel and Uninstall a Program and change Revit. Choose the Add and Remove Features, check the content you want to install and choose Next.
Make sure you have a internet connection through out the install process as the content is downloaded during the installation process.
You might also try temporarliy disabling your firewall while doing the Add Remove features so the content is downloaded.
Also in another post someone mentioned having to add *.autodesk.com to their trusted sites for the content to download for them.
Can you elaborate on the step "check the content you want to install"? I choosed only US Metric and recieved two folders called "My Content Browser Library" and "My Projects", but I cant locate any families in them. What content do I need to check in order to get the families?
All content will have different familes and templates. By default content is installed to "C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\RAC 2013", there will be different folders for templates and libraries (families).
Hi there - I have a similar problem with Revit 2013 (installed student version two weeks ago). In structural columns folder all I have is steel columns (I need concrete columns). I followed the updating process tagging both Australia and US metric and my families remain the same.
Also I can't locate the libraries on my harddrive (running windows 7).
Has anyone found a solution to the missing files in the families and does anyone have a path to the files.
