This may be a silly question, but here it goes.   Our office finally installed 2011, and we all know that everytime you install a new version you get the new Library.  Well our office has been creating/downloading/purchasing families for quite a while.  What is the best way to 'merge' the two libraries so we have one library?  We are going to maintain 2010 for now so I guess we still need a 2010 Library and a 2011 Library... Does that sound right?

How have others handled this?  We have all of these 2010 families and I really don't want to have to save them as 2011 families, nor do I want to have to save each new family going forward as a 2010 and 2011 files.  I'm probably making too much out of this, but I'm trying to keep it simple.

Thanks.

I suggest you keep your files seprate from the program library.  Library maintenance will be a pain if you mix your families with program.  We add folders for our components...

Thanks wwhub, that's what I thought.  So you just copy your folders from version to version?

You can copy but then the files are not upgraded.  AutoDESK provides a batch upgrade utility that you should use each time to upgrade your families.  This does mean that you may have to maintain seperate libraries for each version you may be currently using.  We currently maintain 8, 9, 10 and 11 but we will be archiving 8 and 9 soon.

Where might I find this batch upgrade utility?  I've looked where I thought it would be, but I can't seem to find it.  Is it something that loads during install?  Or is it a subscription tool?  I'm going to go with our IT department didn't install it...

For future people searcing this thread it is located:

C:\username\Autodesk_Revit_Architecture_2011_English_Win_32-64bit\Utilities\Common\ContentBatchUtility

I did a search of my C drive for "ContentBatchUtility" and that is how I found it.
