I need to transfer my project from 1 computer to another. Both has Vista. I could succesfully transfer my project but I have many Materials in User. Please help me to find this user file on Vista to transfer to another machine.I checkedother threads related to this topic but those are for Windows. I tried that but couldn't find.

Thanks.

Sorry for the post. I worked it out. Here is the path to guide other learners like me who visit this thread in future.

 In Vista:

C: Program data> Autodesk> RAC 2008> Rendering> AccuRenderRedist> Support. the file name is user.mlib.

Copy this file to other computer to get your New created user material with your Project.

Good luck & enjoy!!!

Revit installation note:

You are given the option to pick your own place for your templates and component libraries.

 

Post-installation note:

Move or Copy those files to a handy location that you have permission to access.  If this is YOUR computer, and/or you have admin rights, set the ORIGINAL libraries in the ORIGINAL library folder to read-only.  Go to Settings in Revit and point your paths to this new location. 

NOW, when you modify or create a new family, you will HAVE to put it in a custom family folder you have write-rights to.  This makes upgrading less painful so you dont have to hunt down all your mods because they are scattered throughout your original library.  Be sure to have another folder for all the fantastic download from RevitCity! ^_^  Seriously though, Internet families should be in their own folder, too.

 

Sorry if I'm going "overboard" on you!  I have to manage my own system and so I learned this the dreadfully painful way.  Blushing

Thanks for sharing your experience. It's really Helpful. I created a shortcut on my desctop to access the Library. so that I don't need to go there all the time. your points are also good. I have created a seperate folder in Library to put Downloaded Families. That way, I can define my new objects from Default.

Thanks a lot for the reply.
