Okay - I have been making and sharing shared parameter files for years... For some reason today a co-worker's shared parameter file is invalid or could not be read - image attached...
We have run a couple of tests - I can create one on my computer and send to her without any issues... Any that she creates and sends to me - is invalid... WHY???
I made sure she has all the service packs and all that - so I am really at a loss..
I will attach one of the test.txt files..
Solved! Go to Solution.
Are both you and your co-worker running the same version of Revit? Was the Shared Parameter file added to with a newer version of Revit? If a Shared Parameter was added to the file as a type that did not exist prior to that release, the file will be reported as 'invalid' by previous versions.
Yes - we are on the same version. We are both on 2013... That is why the invalid statement is baffling me...
The problem appears to be with the file itself - I was unable to directly link your file, but I could Copy/Paste that exact text into a new .txt file and it worked. I even tried copy/pasting the contents my shared parameter file (which I know works) over the text in yours, and it still returned the error. I, unfortunately, do not know of a solution to this aside from attempting a reinstall. Perhaps there is an add-on that could be inadvertently causing this? Do you have any installed that your co-worker does not?
Sure enought that worked!
That is really odd though... will have to consider reinstalling.
I have a lot of the extensions from the subscription center installed and an FMystems... She does not have any.
Thanks for your help!
How do you do that?
What should the encoding setting be?
I am having the same issue as LisaDrago...same exact error. Also tried to copy/paste into a new .txt but that did not work either.
See attached resultant .txt files.
Thanks so much for the advice.
