Unable to update Revit 2013

I'm trying to update Revit 2013 after experiencing problems outlined in this thread


I'm currently running Build 20120221_2030(x64) - so I should be able to update with updates 1 + 2


Having dowloaded them, and trying to run the EXE - I repeatedly get the message:


The Update Release could not be installed because the expected Autodesk product could not be located on your computer. Make sure you are using the correct Update Release for the product.


My version is Revit 2013 - as part of the Building Design Suite Premium 2013 - this is the only update that I can find, and the build version that Update 1 says that I should have correlates with my current build.


I have also tried UPdate 2 with the same outcome.


I had just installed Revit 2014 as part of an upgrade (which caused the issues that I have been having in the linked thread above).


Really scratching my head over what is preventing the update from going through.


Any suggestions ?

Managed to resolve the issue thanks to a post on this site.


I was updating with the Revit Architecture 2013 updates instead of those specifically for the Building Design Suite Premium 2013 Revit.


LInks to the correct updates can be found in this thread
