I am hoping this could be a sticky for everyones future reference:

My questions are

1. Which Revit.ini file should you edit to point to a new Lookup Table network location, the user or program file version?

2. After you edit the .ini file and save it what are the steps you have to do to "refresh" the pipe fittings already loaded in my project? Is it just a simple restart of Revit or do I need to reload every affected pipe fitting family?

I have done a ton of looking around different forums and have yet to find a single thread that explains this process completely. Thanks to those in advance who can answer this definitively and I hope everyone from here on out can benefit from this thread.

PS I plan to update edits to this thread as other questions that relate pop up.

Thanks

EDIT 1: Are there any charachter limitations in a network path for the .ini file? ie. \\BIM\#Common\Lookup Tables

1) The Revit.ini is usually in the C:\Program Files\ (Revit 20... )\Program\  folder.

2) After editing the .ini file, you need to Re-start Revit. I am not sure what you mean about "refreshing the pipe fittings already loaded in the project". You are just changing the path for the lookup tables. The families will still look for the same file names, but now in a different path. There is no need to reload any families.

I don't know if that character "#" that you have in the path will cause an error.
