Use 8.1 at school is the only option. Revit cannot save back to previous versions (no database can). Tom

You can have both versions intalled at the same time. Check with your insturctor or network administrator though to determine what you have a license for. If you install 8.1 and don't have a license for it, you can active a 30 day trial, but then after the 30 days you are going to be in the same boat you are in now. Tom

I believe the point release require a new activation. Since we are on subscription I don't pay too much attention to the licensing issue. I'm not sure how Autodesk handles the educational license which is why you need to check with your network administrator. Tom

Sorry...won't work. Revit needs to be installed under Windows and will not run as a USB application. It would be nice if it could though as that is the way a lot of applications are heading. In the not too distant future your sofware and files will reside on a USB drive you can take anywhere. Meantime check this out: http://www.usbapps.com/archives/cat_applications.html Tom
