Having technical problems with Revit Architecture 2012

My name is Magnus, I am 18 years old and studying architecture.

When I launch Revit Architecture 2012, i come to a menu where i can choose between the following:


Basic Sample Project 

Advanced Sample Project

Basic Sample Family

Advanced Sample Family

Getting Started Video.


 When I click either of the 4 top choices, the program starts to load, but after a few seconds it crashes and will no longer "Respond". 
I have tried giving it time (from 2 seconds to 20 minutes), but regardless of this, it will still crash. I have tried to use the Windows Repair tool to see if that had any effect, but it didnt.

My system should meet the requirements (as far as i am concerned?), details of my system are at the bottom of the page.


When the crash happens it does not give an error message, it just stops responding.  

So I just wanted to hear if you have any solutions to what I could do to make it work properly?

Hi Magnus,


For your future posts, this is the AutoCAD Architecture forum, not the Revit Architecture forum. I pulled the specs below from the Revit System Requirements page. From what I can tell, your system does not have a strong enough processor, and if your system is 64-Bit, you do not have enough RAM.


For 32-Bit Autodesk Revit Architecture 2012

  • For Microsoft Windows 7 32-bit or Microsoft Windows Vista 32-bit: Intel® Pentium® 4 or AMD Athlon™ dual core processor, 3.0 GHz (or higher) with SSE2 technology 
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 5 GB free disk space
For 64-Bit Autodesk Revit Architecture 2012
  • ForWindows764-bitorWindowsVista64-bit: Intel® Core™ i5-2300 quad-core processor (2.8 GHz, 6 MB cache) or equivalent AMD® processor.
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 5 GB free disk space

Good luck, Mary
