I have just spent some time reinstalling Revit 2023 back into my main workstation after having attempted to update the installed 2023 version to 2023.1.
- The update process could not find the rvt.msi file during the procedure, and at around 48%, it backed out of the update process and blew up the existing Revit 2023 installation.
SO, I reinstalled Revit 2023 from my AutoDesk account after it completed the installation and asked me to start, I fired it up.
Just as it got into life, the installer completed its cleaning-up process and then promptly removed the Revit software core:
After trying a number of times to reinstall (I had uninstalled Revit 2023 using the Windows 11 app manager) and obtaining the same result, I went in and ripped out all the traces of Revit 2023 from the system, including the registry, as instructed in the following AutoDesk Knowledge Article:
Still no joy. The install from my Autodesk account was not working.
So looking at the Custom Install options:
I set up a new Custom Install.
After removing all residues of Revit 2023 from my system, I ran the installer, and we now have an operational Revit 2023.1.
Interestingly, I did have a successful upgrade on my laptop system, but even though it has installed the Revit 2023.1 software correctly, the Autodesk Desktop App still shows the 2023.1 upgrades as being available.
