Revit 2014 empty library files

There is no content in my 2014 family libraries for either imperial or metric. Tried the update routine from programs>uninstall but that didn't work. Where can I load the files from?

Hi


The new version of Revit, there is no Template and Library


You can down version of the template, for example, 2011 Library and copy and paste the path in 2014.

 


Http://seek.autodesk.com/ are also available for download as well.

You can try to install the component library separately.
First - close Revit.
Go to Control Panel> Programs> Uninstall a program.
Select Revit 2014 and click Uninstall / Change
A window will come up for Revit
Select Add or Remove Features
Under content pack - select the content you need
Then click Next
This should install the component library

 

Let me know how this goes

Thanks LD but that was the first thing I tried. If i select next it justs updates Revit, doesn't install the library. If i select add content, it sends me looking for an xml file on my computer. Have no idea where to look.

I am having the same problems as Thad. I cannot get any of the Imperial Library files to download in Revit 2014, and have tried the suggestions in this thread to remedy the problem with no luck.

Lisa's steps for adding content are correct, but be aware that the content is downloaded during the install process so you have to have an internet connection during the install process. Plus you may have something in your firewall or anti-virus that is blocking the download.

posted a help request on the subscription site and they sent me to a ftp site to down load the files. If you are a subscription member, suggest you do that.
