    2012 deploy issues

    Has anyone figured out how to install 2012 without having it download the content over and over again?

    The key is to edit the Master.RAC.xml file. Just strip out anything you don't want installed locally. A fully stripped version is attached, just replace txt with xml.
    This info comes from a Bret Thomson post over here.

    Some good info on related topics at Revit Clinic.

      Thanks. Do you know if I can install on a machine without any internet connection?

        Haven't tested that. My guess is that it still tries to download and install the local help stuff, so the install is going to "fail" at some level. Don't know if it will continue silently and just log the issue, or drop to interactive mode, or fail totally and roll everything back. Hopefully the first.

          Has anyone deleted the other two flavors of content.xml from their RAC deployment? I don't understand why they need to be there. Also at the same level in the folder structure is a folder called 'en' that holds a ton of .cab and .xml files that seem like they are just extra baggage if you don't want your deployment to install content in the first place. I plan on deleting the files and running a clean install to see what happens if no one has done so yet.

            You could try the Revit 2012 Deployment Utility

              That utility is a bit of a joke when it comes to the content installation. All it does is remove one line of code.

              No response to my comments yet on that post

              I went ahead and started over with a deployment recreation deleting the enu folder and the two content.xml folders for the other flavors of Revit. Seemed to work just fine and my install took all of nine minutes.:thumbsup:
