    Files appear white in job folder.



    For some reason my files (every type) have turned blank "white" Has anyone seen this before and perhaps know a fix.

    Do you still have Revit installed? If you do do they open ok? I haven't seen it with Revit specifically, but I've seen it happen when a file type doesn't have a program associated to open it. The times I've seen it opening one file (and associating a program if needed) will cause the rest to adjust.

        Since you are supposed to open Revit before opening the file, this is not a big deal....

        The white page icon just means that Windows has lost/doesn't have a executable associated with the file extension.

          Hi JD003, if for whatever reason Windows has disassociated the .rvt file type with the revit executable then just right click after selecting a revit file, then go to 'open with', go to revit.exe in the choices or by going to open with other, etc., and select revit.exe as the executable to open with and the association will be remade. Oh, and don't forget to tick the 'always open this file type with' box.

          This may have happened due to a windows update, installing another Autodesk exe, etc., but it's an easily recoverable situation.
