A note on C4R Update 9 and Revit 2015 Update 12:
Users of A360 Collaboration for Revit may experience an error on Revit startup if they install the Revit 2015 R2 Update Release 12 but not the corresponding A360 Collaboration for Revit update, version 2015.9.
The error dialog will reference the following: File name: ‘Autodesk.RevitServer.Versioning.Client,…..

  • To continue using A360 Collaboration for Revit, close all sessions of Revit, then download and install the Collaboration 2015.9 update and restart Revit.
  • To stop using A360 Collaboration for Revit, uninstall this program via the Programs and Features functionality of the Windows Control Panel.

I posted the links recently to download Update 11 for Revit 2015, over here. Unfortunately, this update causes problems with Revit Server.

While there is no official hotfix (yet), you can still have Update 11 and Revit Server if you follow one of the 3 methods at this link to fix your Revit install:
Revit 2015: UR11 breaks Revit Server | Revit Products | Autodesk Knowledge Network

Method 1 involves modifying Autodesk.RevitServer.Social.dll, Method 2 involves modifying Revit.exe.config, and Method 3 recommends not installing Update 11 (?)

Check the main article for the detailed steps.

This is ‘on purpose’, and it represents a new workflow. See below from Autodesk:
 … the new intended workflow: For file-based collaboration, as well as for Revit Server based collaboration, you would click the Collaborate button and select the LAN/WAN option.  This will create the default worksets and enable worksharing, after which you would save the model as a new central to the location of your choice (typically a local file share or a Revit Server host.)

So, the correct way to enable worksharing on non-workshared models is to click the Collaborate button, then to choose “Collaborate within your network”, as per the image below. Then Save the Central as previously. Finally, in a usual work environment you would immediately close the Central, and create a new Local before starting production work.

An update to the dates:

My previous post:
What Revit Wants: Revit 2015 Update 7, and planned A360 downtime for Collaboration for Revit

The Revit Clinic has revealed some key dates for upcoming Revit releases, and the associated effect on the Collaboration for Revit platform. Highlighted in red below, it appears that the release of Update 7 (UR7) for Revit 2015 is imminent, and that Collaboration for Revit 2016 will be released on April 17. Could this mean we will see Revit 2016 available on that date also?

“The planned downtimes are as follows:
2015 Update Release 7 & C4R 2015.4 – March 6

C4R 2015.5 and C4R 2016.0 – April 17

Did you ever notice this little button, available in the Manage Images dialog in Revit 2015?

Although it is pretty self-evident, here you can replace an image by reloading from a different one. You can also use the Reload button to reload an image from the ‘saved path’.


This was a platform enhancement in 2015, as per:
