Save Space & Time When Applying Revit Updates to Deployments

Within a few months, Autodesk has released a second update for the Revit family of products. Download them from the Autodesk website (here). Being a “on the ball” IT guy, I went to update my deployment images for Revit Architecture, Structure, and MEP.

Since I have both standalone and network versions, I don’t want to download the updates twice. The automated method actually downloads the MSP from Autodesk and puts it into the file location \company.comdeploymentsRevitArchitecture2012-64bitAdminImagex64RAC2012, under the file name rac2012ur2.msp. Knowing this, I moved the .MSP file over the root of the deployment image for the Revit product and modified the deployment to apply that .MSP. One MSP can then be used for both standalone and network deployment. Save server space. Save time. WOOT WOOT!
