Well for nearly a year i've grinned and bared this issue. Usually it's occurred on a pc that was due for a reformat anyway so i've just used this issue as an excuse and rebuilt pc's when they have this issue.
For those of you not familiar with the issue
originally posted by Kim.I've got a really strange problem, since I installed this build of Revit over the holidays, now when I start "Quickbooks Timer" the Revit installer starts. If I then cancel the install twice, the quickbooks timer starts.
I suspect a registry error but I'm not sure what?
Any clues or suggestions on how I can fix this, I've tried reinstalling the quickbooks timer which went fine but the revit installer still starts when I try to start the timer.
Now i've had it occur on a brand new pc, which i certainly don't plan on rebuilding.
All programs are always installed under the domain administrator login.
Uninstalling/Re-installing of both programs does not resolve the issue, and the issue does seem to be somewhat random in when it occurs, but it is definitely consistent throughout our office. It has occurred on 6 computers since i've been here.
Letting the installer run will cause revit's licence to become corrupt and have to be installed.
I've filed this with Autodesk Support but the Asia Pacific support department still seems to be down or something?
Does anyone have a solution to this issue?
PS. We are using Quickbooks Timer 2003.
