This Blog applies to ProjectWise V8i SS4 08.11.11.559 or earlier.ProjectWise users that integrate ProjectWise V8i with Revit 2013 need to be aware of a couple of Revit related issues that have been reported to TSG.
Revit 2013 Service pack introduces a slight format change that ProjectWise reports to the user. Once a Revit 2013 central file is synchronizedit won’t open from ProjectWise. The user gets the following error message:
(Error Dialog: The *.rvt was saved in a later version of Revit and cannot be opened in this version.)
The file can be opened from the local drive; so if you get this error message you will need to do the following:
You will need to make sure that nobody with Revit 2013 SP3 opens files from ProjectWise until the issue isresolved and Revit 2013 SP3 is supported. Once we have a fix for this issue we will post a reply to this blogarticle.
If you install Revit 2014 one of the prerequisites is .NET 4.5. ProjectWise 08.11.11.559 is tested with .NET4.0. The installed .NET 4.5 is breaking integration in ProjectWise integrated Revit 2013 when elements are borrowed.
If you encounter this issue you can uninstall .NET 4.5 and restore .NET 4.0 to restore ProjectWise Integration with Revit 2013. Once we have a fix for thisissue we will post a reply to this blog article.
There is a ProjectWise V8i Application Integration Compatibility Table on BE Communities in the Content Management section:
Any time you are working with an integrated application you should work with compatible versions. It is a good habit to check this tablebefore upgrading integrated applications.
Both of these issues are fixed in ProjectWise V8i SS4 Refresh 08.11.11.574 which is available on Select Downloads
The issue mentioned above under, "Installing Revit 2014 with PW Explorer", is filed under TR# 352461. This is also fixed in this Priority Build.
