Hi,

I've tried serching for this in the forum but I only kept on coming across people trying to open newer files on older versions. BUT in my case I want to open an older version (I have no clue in what version it was created) and I have tried it on Revit 9.1, and 2009, but can't get it to open.

 

Shouldn't it be like word if you have 07 you can open 97-03 but if you have 97-03 you can't open 07????

 

I would really appreciate it since this projects bids in a couple of days and need it to help my estimator for his take off...

 

 thanks,

I assume you are getting errors such as "your project needs to be manually upgraded"?  How large is the file?  If its small, then as the error message suggests file a Support Request with Autodesk and they should be able to update it fairly quickly for you.

If its quite large you might just need a computer with sufficient RAM to be able to upgrade it as upgrading is very RAM intensive. A 100MB file can typically require 2-4GB RAM to update...

 

HTH.

 it was just a dumb question on my behalf... turns out it was a newer version[[I was thinking I was sitting in the computer running 09 where I would be up tp date with no issues) I was actually trying to open it in  2008 and 9.1 then I realized HEY! let me try it on the other computer (which runs Revit Architecture 2009) and it worked

 so we're gonna have to update real soon to avoid any issues down the road.
