    Upgrading Projects & Revit.INI

    For some reason I recall there being a switch that can be included in the INI file to enable / disable a dialog box asking if the user wants to upgrade a project to the newest version. Am I delusional in that or am I just not finding it?

    Is it Friday yet... ?

    Google says you are delusional and it is not Friday. I will keep searching now though because I am curious.

    As Rob noted, i don't think there is a setting. AFAIK. it's just a new feature that was added to Revit 2016. I'm not sure why anyone would want to disable this behavior, in the project setting at least, so i'd be surprised if adesk provided that flexibility.

    If that is possible then the dialog that appears would likely include a check box option to disable showing it in the future and I don't recall it having that option. Also the way it works, it does not stop upgrading the file, it only allows us to cancel the opening/upgrading of the file if that takes long enough for us to click Cancel. That means disabling the dialog from appearing would effectively eliminate the new feature from existing at all...it would upgrade files like it used to without any opportunity to avoid it happening.

    This pretty much covers it. There is not an INI switch to toggle the upgrade information box. The ability to cancel is all that was added.
