    Default Revit 2012 Stability

    I just wanted to see if there is anyone who has just upgraded to Revit 2012 and NOT had it crash on them. Anyone?

    The biggest issue I am having is doing anything in the materials window. Just about any kind of modifying of material appearances is crashing Revit. Wouldn't it be nice if Autodesk would stop releasing betas?

    You don't like being a beta tester?

    Yeah, I'd like to hear if anyone else is also having problem with 2012 crashing. On first look 2012 looked pretty smooth so I was all set to continue my projects using 2012 but after a day of crashing I went back to 2011.

    FWIW, I just recently installed RAC 2012 on my laptop. I also have 2009, 2010 and 2011 versions installed. Today, RAC 2011 crashed (fatal error) on me while exiting out of the Material dialog box. I have never had a fatal error like that in any version of Revit before. It could be a coincidence, or I could chalk it up to the 150 MB of windows updates I was blessed with yesterday.

    This crashes I also encounter in Revit 2012 and Showcase 2012. But in the 32 bit Windows 7. Not in 64 bit.

    I have 64 bit Windows 7. In Revit 2011 I remember there was a choice to install either 64 or 32 bit Revit. The 2012 download has both the 32 and 64 bit versions together. Was there a choice at some point during the installation as to which version to install? How can I know that I have 64 bit Revit installed and not 32 bit Revit?

    Thanks.

    Never mind...I just found this in the Read Me file

    "Whether your Windows operating system is the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, the version is automatically detected during installation. The appropriate version of Revit is installed. A 64-bit version of Revit cannot be installed on a 32-bit system and vice-versa. "

    It's "probably" more stable than the beta... but yes I've seen some crashing while editing materials.

    The way Autodesk thinks, that's a call for them to release alphas.

    I had hoped to move a 2011 project that is in DD to 2012, but it crashed 3 times in 2 hours. I downloaded the certified video driver, before starting. Click on Ambient shadows in shaded view, instant crash. Changing colors to materials would only show the change across half the wall. Changing from shaded view to hidden line and back would show proper material change.

    I am running XP 32bit, and 2011 is very stable. I seriously can't remember it crashing, but maybe it has once or twice in the last 6 months.

    Exclamation Re: Revit 2012 Stability

    Seriously though, I really would like to know if there is a single user that has used Revit 2012 for a reasonable amount of time and not had it crash?
