    C4R dependencies between Revit versions

    Can anyone verify, are there shared dependencies between C4R on different versions of Revit, such that a particular version of C4R on Revit 2015 could cause install failures for a particular version of C4R on Revit 2016?

    I've been having issues related to the manage cloud models side of C4R between versions - right now I can do so for 2015 and 2017, but not 2016. I had all three working briefly after reinstalling everything from scratch and upgrading to 2017.1.1 but it stopped working in 2016 shortly afterwards.

    The original issue on my machine seemed to be tied to the 2017.0.3 security fix, which corrupted the Personal Accelerator for Revit (I had to remove registry keys before any C4R components would install). The only thing I did between when all three versions worked and when they didn't was publish a 2017 model.

    I know that I couldn't install older C4R versions with 2017 installed because there was a newer version of the personal accelerator already installed. Perhaps Autodesk compiles the latest version of the Personal Accelerator with each C4R update, and after that you can't install any updates relying on an older version?

      I think the Revit 2017.1 update installs the Personal Accelerator for Revit 16.0.1185.0. However, I noticed that I also have Autodesk A360 Collaboration v8 for Revit 2016 16.0.1185.0. Revit 2017 A360 is version 17.0.1081.0

        Thanks Markus! That update fixed the access to 2016 cloud model management for me. When I'd searched for the latest c4r version update 7 was coming back, so I didn't realize there was a newer one.

          Markus, are you saying that the Revit 2017.1 update ALSO updates Personal Accelerator for Revit 2016? So, a common Personall Accelerator across multiple versions, but different C4R versions for each? That would be... confusing. And a PitA to manage and update properly.

            Gordon, it is confusing. There seems to be the same accelerator for Revit 2016 than for 2017. Revit 2016 v8 apparently installed an updated C4R, but the accelerator seems to be from the 2017.1 update?

              My guess is that there is only one version of the accelerator that is current, and updates include the current one at the time of their update. The 2016 c4R v8 update would have installed the latest version of personal accelerator, but you already installed it with your last 2017 update (you can see update install dates for Revit, but not c4R or the accelerator on the left hand toolbar)

              You can't use an older update (like installing the v7 c4r 2016 update after you have a more current accelerator.

                The Revit Accelerator is version-agnostic, so there aren't numerous OS-level services operating for each major Revit version. C4R addons are version-specific, as they interface tightly with the corresponding Revit version code.

                  Kyle, are you saying that any version of C4R should work with any version of RA? Or just that RA works with all the years of Revit, but still needs to be matched with the correct update of C4R on each year/all years of Revit? The latter seems to be the case based on the issues I have seen, but I want to be sure I am not barking up an empty tree with my testing.

                    The latest version of Revit Accelerator should work with any C4R addon version across any major Revit version, as the dependencies between the two are not significant. If you are seeing issues, I'd suggest that you get a support request going on behalf of your customer.
