    R2015 r2?

    Hi All, new computer and I have reinstalled Revits 2015 thru 2017. The Revit 2015 install has been updated to UR14 but due to some missing items in the UI I have discovered that I did not install the R2 subscription update and apparently I have to uninstall and start over again. The problem is that R2015 R2 update is not available on my Adesk subscription page (that I can find). When filtering for R2015 under Updates the items Supplement and Update are greyed out and only Language Packs are available. Does anyone know where I can get R2 for R2105? And does anyone have a link to some documentation about what needs to be installed and in what order to get R2015 up to date?

    edit: btw, I installed R2015 from the original hard copy media (thumb drive). I'm wondering if I was to download the whole R2015 install from the subscription site would it include all updates??

    Here is a link to the Readme file about what to install before R2:

      I'm not sure I trust that page. I probably tried installing R2 on FCS at least 20 times, on Windows 7, 8 & 10. Never once got it to work. Nor on any UR earlier than 3. This makes some sense as UR3 included the Heartbleed fix, and I can see where all later updates may require that.

      Also, I just tried installing UR's 5+ for R2, in the hopes that one of them was cumulative including R2, but it seems that all the subscription updates are cumulative only POST R2, and require at least that R2 is installed first. So, one way or the other Dave, you need to get ahold of the R2 installer. That said, the Subscription site is a bit of a fustercluck, with stuff found in different places and zero effort by ADSK to rationalize it. So, the question is, where did you look? I've found the most consistent option is All Products & Services, then choose Download under your product/suite. Then go to the Updates & Addons tab that no longer looks like a tab. Then Add a Filter for 2015 and Revit and Apply. I get four downloads in the filtered list, UR3, R2, and UR14 for R2 and not for R2. That should get you fully patched. just don't use the wrong UR14 or you have to start all over again.

        thanks for that Artejon! For the record nothing needs to be installed before R2, it can be installed on the original R2015 install. Now I'd like to find out what updates will get me current for R2015. Frankly the Adesk subscription page is really strange. If I log in via manage.autodesk.com there are basically no R2015 updates listed. But accessing my subscription page via the link in the page you provided gets me to all kinds of updates, but nothing newer than R2 and I'm pretty sure there are further updates.

          my R2 update went fine?? Then I tried to install UR14 and it failed, obviously not the correct one for R2. And there is only one UR14 update for download on my subscription page. Any idea where to get the R2 UR14 update?

            Interesting. Not seeing this, eh? Anyway, gimme a minute and I'll put it on Dropbox. Since you have to have R2 installed, ADSk can't complain much. Plus, if they had their **** together with the web site, they wouldn't have a gripe.

            EDIT: PM'd you.

              I have a "Autodesk® Revit® 2015 English Locked Windows 64 bit R2" show up when I filter the products & updates to revit & 2015, but I'm not sure what the locked does or doesn't do.

              You can also get to it through the updates & addons, the key with that filter is not to pick "Autodesk Revit" for the product, but to pick "Autodesk® Revit®". Those registered trademarks always seem to have the useful downloads...

                on my page there are two R2 updates, one as you have described and another with the same description but underneath is says "for subscription R2" or something like that. But only one UR14 and it's not the one for R2. How hard can this be Autodesk? Some of us make a living by being in Revit. I don't make a dime having to install, uninstall, install Revit.

                btw, I did filter by Autodesk Revit but don't remember an option for a registered trademark version. And, I'm tired of Autodesk for today so I'll stock that info away for later use....thanks!!

                  I suspect the web site is maintained by a summer intern. Who gets told what to do by both engineering (who are right) and Marketing (who are wrong). And Marketing is just doing what Legal (who are evil) tells them to do. And all the while, leadership (who are clueless) is diddling. So, the fustercluck we have is actually pretty good, considering.
