    Can you run both Revit 2018 and 2017 at the same time?

    I have a user who is running Revit 2018 and 2017 at the same time. This causes Revit 2018 to freeze. Did I forget to mention that they are also running AutoCAD 2018. We have the Unifi plugin which runs on both and has a customization to automatically open with Revit.

    Curious if it's Revit or the plugin causing the crash?

    It certainly isnt Revit. I run all sorts of combinations at the same time: 2016, 2017, 2018, and the entire rest of the 2018 suite.

        How many monitors do you have?

            Good lord. Way to make the rest of us feel jealous. I bet that 2019 and the multi monitor support couldn't have come fast enough for you.

              I'm looking forward to it, for sure. We're getting ready to start a new project in 2019. Ironically, it's not installed here yet.

              Sent from my Phablet. Please excuse typos... and bad ideas.

                On the subject of monitors, I've reverted to a single 4K monitor. The Nvidia card handles it well. It's a Samsung TV from Best Buy, less than $800. The so-called downside is the refresh rate is only 30Hz at full resolution , but it's not a CRT and I'm using it for Revit, which has no monsters to shoot at, so it's great. The screen is so big that I can look at big drawings in one view at the same HD resolution of my previous three monitors, but I never have to think about where to frame palettes, properties, browser, etc.

                  Im actually getting ready to replace my (3) 27" 2560x1440's for (3) 27" 4k monitors, lol. A friend has that setup in his office, and its amazing.
