   I once found the file that lists the accepted video cards, but have since forgotten where it is. I was able to add my GTX 460M to the list, but when Revit updates  that file is re-written.

samjohnsonus, don't you realize how disappointing it is to open a thread and find out you have nothing to contribute? If you want to chime in with useless anecdotes join a chat room. This is a "nuts and bolts" fix-it place!

teafoe5, I had no trouble finding Autodesk's list of accepted video cards. What I am asking about is the file inside the Revit program that lists the accepted cards. It can be hacked to include the card I'm using. Revit likes the GTX 460 already, but not the 460M (laptop card).

"It can be hacked to include the card I'm using"

 

Is that really a good idea? 

 

Eitherway I found this that may help

pjdarmstrong,

Where did you get the idea there was a file like this?

I finally found the file:  C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Revit 2014\AdskHardwareCertificationReport.xml

 

I successfully added my video card to this file a couple of years ago (in Dreamweaver), and Revit would go into the accellerated graphics mode with my laptop video card!  

Found an Nvidia GEFORCE GTX400 series listing and copied it to another line, changed the number to 460M in the new line, and saved the file.

This time I had to change the permissions for that folder. Still have to see if Revit will "see" my card.  I wrote down the line number I added and might have to remove my changes if things go haywire, but as I said, it worked last time. The problem is that the file gets over-written when Revit is updated (they add new video cards that they have tested with Revit).

Whether or not your card is listed here has nothing to do with how Revit works with the card.  Revit just uses the listing initially to see if your card is KNOWN to work.  If it is not, then Revit tells you but you can still use the card.

 

Sorry to bust your bubble.

WW Hub,  yeah, I got that page as well.  However, I can now use Ray-trace!, so I did something, even though Revit's telling me my card is untested. I should see if I can influence Autodesk to test and approve my card, but I doubt a corporation that big would hear me.

@pjdarmstrong: No issues, thanks for an unexpected comment. But I do have same problem. I have tried it in other search engines also, but couldnot get relevant solution.

Samjohnsonus,  my comment does look a little harsh in retrospect! And now that I have found the file I was looking for I'm a calmer man. 

I graduated in Architectural Drafting in 2010 after a long career in residential and commercial building. Haven't done much with Revit for $$ as the building industry is still too slow here in Tucson, AZ.  How about you? Are you using Revit to earn?
