I have tried installing Revit 2012 and 2011 several times on my new device which is a windows 8 but the installation fails everytime. Are there problems with Autodesk products and windows 8? most of my work is on Revit so I need to figure out a solution,
I'm not sure that Revit 2011 or 2012 will install on Windows 8, as they were developed several years ago --well before Windows 8, which uses .NET 4.5.
Window 7 uses .NET 4.0. If a computer gets upgraded to .NET 4.5, Revit's ribbon experiences alot of problems.
Could you install Revit 2013 on Win 8 and upgrade you older projects?
Windows 8 is not a supported OS for Revit which means autodesk did not test it on windows 8 so what ever problems you run into my or may not get fixed in 2013
