After my problematic experience installing Revit 2023.1 (See Installing Updates), I updated my workstation to 2023.1.1 and thought I would now have a stable system. Revit 2023.1.1 Installed
No such luck!
After completely removing and installing all of my AutoDesk software, Revit 2023.1.1 is now finally working.
After the upgrade to 2023.1.1, the next time I opened up 2023, the program would not run.
Everything but the core application was installed, even the shortcut, but the Revit 2023 executable was nowhere to be found on the system.
But in reinstalling, I get the following message:
After working through the issue via screen sharing with Autodesk Support from Singapore, the system still was not fixed. It was suggested that it could be fixed by deleting the required values in Registry.
Other AutoDesk software had started to become unstable, so rather than waste any more time, I decided to remove the entire Autodesk from the machine. This included:
- AutoCAD, 2022, AutoCAD 2023
- Revit 2021, 2022 and 2023 and all add-ons
- 3D Studio Max
- Everything else related to AutoDesk.
Essentially, a new machine from an AutoDesk perspective.
The process of clean uninstalling all Autodesk products installed on your system, make sure you follow the steps below:
1. Uninstall all Autodesk products and components from the control panel, and remove Autodesk folders & the paths in the registry:
2. Uninstall all Autodesk-related components and remnant files in the system:
3. Reboot the machine, download and install Autodesk licensing service 13.0 for Windows:
4. Re-install the software needed.
Please note that the procedures described above relate to my system, so please use them at your own risk.
