Location of Shared Parameter file critical?

Postby Studio12 » Sun Mar 18, 2012 3:14 pm

Does it actually matter where the Shared Parameter file is located? ie can it sit on someone hard drive- for safe-keeping and easy administration?

(as you tell, I haven't fully got my head around shared parameters yet :oops: )

thanks

It is critical in so much as it needs to be on a network location such that every other Revit installtion can reference it.

Or are you using Revit stand-alone?

One tip for Shared Parameter Files- put ONE person in charge of it and let them adminster it. When other people start dabbling with it, that's when you are going to get into a whole heap of trouble.

Just my 2c's
