RFO user revittotd has come across an interesting anomaly:
via thread at
The Trouble with Tribbles…
Basically, the issue goes something like this:
Revit 2012 can’t find a linked dwg anymore. When I try to reload it, Revit says the file doesn’t exist. There is an other linked dwg in the same folder, which still loads fine.
Here are some relevant forum threads:
Here is one solution. Well, its not really a solution, more of a method that can be used to fix this problem:
1) make view templates for the graphical overrides of the imported dwg (Overrides import)
2) remove the file from the project
3) save under new name
4) reopen the project and Link CAD the same dwg file
5) apply the view template for graphical overrides
6) check all views, if you imported to all views
7) redo dimensions, if there were any connecting the linked dwg with the model

You are about to delete a number of model elements, but you are concerned about how many tags and dimensions are going to be affected by this deletion event.
Here is a quick way to check:
Now, you can use that list to check check or correct the affected detail items.

I find the Error Report – Warning – Select by ID process to be a little unwieldy in Revit (at the moment).
Here is a little process that may speed things up for you when reviewing a Error Report in Revit.
If you try to open Revit 2012 and it stalls at the splash screen, you can try ending the process WSCommCntr3.exe by accessing it in the Task Manager and clicking ‘End Process’.
The video below shows the issue:
I think that the problem is definitely related to the WSCommCntr. This is the Autodesk Infocenter, and it should be located at:
C:Program FilesCommon FilesAutodesk SharedWSCommCntr3lib
As I state in the title, stopping the offending process is only a temporary solution. There may be some issue that you need to correct. For instance, my Task Manager also showed WSCommCntr2.exe and I essentially also had to stop this process to get the Autodesk Infocenter to behave.
Feel free to comment if you would like your experience with the Autodesk Infocenter.
I have previously had other issues with Revit stalling at the splash screen:

In the Options dialog box, when a graphics driver problem is reported, a link is provided from the Options dialog to the website.
The hyperlink refers to http://www.autodesk.com/revitarchitecture-graphicshardware but it should refer to http://www.autodesk.com/revitarchitecture-graphicscard
Have you ever spent ages typing into a web form, only to press submit and be served a message like “Error=remote_computer_lost_your_hard_work” or even just a blank page?
If this has just happened to you, and before you do ANYTHING else, try this:
These types of errors do happen, and there is are some very poorly coded websites out there.
Hopefully this has helped you recover some work!
I have been experiencing some Event 1030 errors, and the ‘Details’ tab in the Event Viewer shows the following:
|ErrorDescription||Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.||following||asf|
To correct this, I have tried removing the stored usernames and passwords (on Windows Vista), using this technique:

I had a weird issue wherein I could join our office VPN using XP and Vista with no problems, but Windows 7 would not connect to the VPN and would trigger an error. (Please note that I was trying to connect to a Small Business Server 2003 computer).
The following fix worked for me:
Reboot the computer, and see if you can now connect to the VPN.I found this fix at http://thenonapeptide.blogspot.com/2009/09/solving-pptp-vpn-error-720-on-windows-7.html
