On one of our computers here in the office we have a strange problem. When trying to use File > Open, a file will open to about 75% or so, then Revit just closes - no error messages, it just closes. If you go to File Manager and double click a file, it will open just fine in Revit. It just won't work when using File > Open. Any ideas?
I have attached the journal file. I started a new one. The steps included starting Revit 2009, using File > Open, picking a file. It gets to about 50% then Revit just closes. Also, if we just double click the file from Explorer, it opens just fine. This only happens when using File > Open
First, a question and then a suggestion:
Does this only happen with one file? or with all files?
Try deleting (or better, renaming) your Revit.ini file. Revit will create a new one the next time it is run.
You could also try to copy the revit.ini from a "working" computer.
This file is located in c:\Program Files\Revit Structure 2009\Program
I am having the same exact problem and seek a solution. On only 1 computer in the office (mine); when trying to open a drawing from inside Revit (File>Open), the opening process will reach about 73%, and close unexpectingly without a notice of error. Like said before, the programs closes as if it had not been running in the first place. As mentioned, I can open the files through Windows File Explorer, but endure periodic crashes when working on the file (not sure if i can technically call it a crash as those typically warrant some sort of system acknowledgment). These symptoms lead me to believing that we're dealing with virtual memory or RAM issues. Is this correct, and is there a way to solve this issue? I'm already working with 3gbRAM, which by all means should be sufficient for the 32-bit application. Thoughts...Ideas? Or do i simply hope that this bug is corrected in the first service pack for Revit2010
