Problem Description: The location of Central Model in Revit sometimes changes from the mapped drive to the local directory of the user as seen in the snapshots below.
Cause: When Revit is unable to find a linked file, it opens a “Resolve Links” window for the user. If while opening a file, the “Create New Local” option is ticked and the “Resolve Links” window pops up next, it creates a new Central File instead of new local file, hence the path of the central file changes. This is a defect identified in ProjectWise Explorer version 10.00.02.320 and has been rectified in 10.00.03.49 version.
Steps to recreate the issue: This happens when “Create New Local” is turned on while resolving links for the Central Model. This issue can be recreated using the following steps.
Solution to correct the path of the files:
Solution to avoid this issue: The only solution to avoid this issue is to upgrade to 10.00.03.49
