Revit locks up when clicking on open icon or from the file menu

Revit Architecture 2009 Suite, keeps locking up on one users machine when trying to access the open file window from the open icon on the toolbar or by using file then open or by using ctrl-o. Double clicking on a revit file from windows manager works fine. I tried uninstalling revit, deleteing the folders associated with revit and reinstalling and it still does the same thing. Any help would be appreciated.

And, 4 1/2 years later we are suddenly having exactly the same problem.

 

What did you see? How did you fix it?

SOLVED

 

For those who ever have this problem, it is likely related to something getting corrupted in the user's logon profile.

 

We solved it by clearing the logon profile (annoying in itself, but not lethally so) - and hey presto, the open dialogues start working again.

 

Likely there is something screwy happening if the user has customised previous versions of Revit - in our case a user have customised the Library Folders in the open dialog (which aren't saved in Revit.ini - they are saved in th eregistry somewhere) and then upgraded to a 64bit machine (Windows 7-64) and Revit 2009 x64. The older Library customisations seem to have got scrambled - removing them from registry didn't solve the issue, but deleteing their entire profile (From Control Panel - System - Advanced) fixed it.

 

Do I get a solver's fee?
