Building Design Suite Premium Install Issue

We recently purchased 2 networked licenses of Building Design Suite Premium 2014.  My IT person mistakenly downloaded and installed the AutoCAD Design Suite Premium instead of the Building Design Suite Premium.  The software activated and operates correctly, but I am missing the additional programs fromteh Building Design package.  The only program that I need immedately is Revit so I downloaded the standalone version as a trial and after installing it I tried to activate it, but it will not accept my serial number.  

 

Do I have to install the entire Design Suite Premium package to get a version of Revit that can be activated?  

If so, do I have to uninstall the currently installed programs that are part of the AutoCAD Design Suite Premium package or can they remain?

nope it requires a uninstall/reinstall

since its a network license you should be fine the license file takes care of the licenses

the revit install needs to be installed as a network not as a trial

the only program you won't be able to use is Mudbox since this product is not in the Building Design Suite

Since the Revit trial is already installed, do I need to uninstall and re-install the program or is there a way to activate it with the network license after the installation?
