My office has 2009 through subscription, but we are not using it.  We have a project that is due with DD next week.  Yet there are a lot of issues we cannot fix - one roof will not change to square cut edge, several curtain wall doors do not recognize the room they lead into, cleanup of stacked walls.  I am told by tech support that 2009 fixes all of this.  I converted at home and low and behold!!!  The problems all went away.

 

My project manager and my team are very weary of converting mid stream.  The feeling is that once we convert to 2009 and start working, there is no down conversion back (BAD move by Autodesk) if we hit big problems.

 

Does anyone know of problems with converting?  Had problems themselves? Issues with families converting?  memory issues?  Our computers meet the required configuration but not the recommended.  ALL HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!  Thanks.

Yes.  I had a number of wall sweeps and reveals on my '08 project that were shortened (ie Brick recesses that were shortened to align with a window, for one).  All these got shifted one way or another when converted.  Other than that it all seemed to work fine.

Any of your custom textures will need to be updated before they will render correctly.

With the subscription you are able to have both 2008 & 2009 installed at the same time.  Perhaps you could do a "save as" on your updated file.  That way if the upgrade causes more problems than it fixes at least you will be able to fall back to the old.

I have only converted a couple of projects (Revit Structure), but that was a while ago so I don't remember any specific issues. What I do remember is that they were easily fixed. It seems like they were in areas that '09 worked just a little differently than '08, so it created some errors, but they were easily addressed. I think that the advantages to upgrading now far outweigh any hiccups that may arise in the upgrade process.
