    No content in 2018 Deployment

    Has anyone else had a problem where you're not getting the content installed with a 2018 Deployment?
    I found an Autodesk KB article that talks about 2016 and 2017 having this problem:
    https://knowledge.autodesk.com/suppo...eployment.html

    Can't believe it's still a problem in 2018.
    I'm including US Imperial but not US Metric if that makes a difference.

    Yes.

    The way i finally got the 2018 Content to install..... Was to email Gordon and ask him to upload it for me. LOL.

    (I dont use their content at all, but i always download it every where so i can talk to clients about it).

      Does this include material libraries or just the Seek sh1te they're bundling nowadays?

      Only asking as we had a 2015 install self-detonate-delete it's Material Library over the weekend and it reminded me (because the machine was moaning about "Disabled render features" that I've not been pushing that stuff onto the server - and (if the case) this would be the prompt I need!

        I believe it's "just" the Content.
        For me, at least that includes the OOTB Families, and (worse) the Family Templates.
        Looks like the IES lighting folder, too, but we don't use that.

          I copied the two files specified in the KB article and re-ran the Deployment and now Hooray! I have content!
          I do have to bang my head about two things, though.
          Even though I specified ONLY English_Imperial, I still have 14 different folders with everything from Chinese to Czech to Russian in my Family Templates folder.
          Probably not worth cleaning up, but... why?
          rant #2:
          When I filed a Support Request with Autodesk, they suggested I file an "Enhancement request".
          For something that is clearly a bug.
          And has been broken for three versions now.
          "Enhancement"....:crazy:

            Hi Dave,

            Not sure if this is related to my query. I understood that there was new content with the 2018.1 update but I'm none the wiser as to where it is, or even if it exists.

            Oh, and I too ended up with multiple folders for other countries even though I only downloaded the English (Metric) package.

              Interesting. Usually content goes into a number of folders in C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\RVT 2018. So, on a VM with an OOTB deployment installed, I ran the update and I have no change to those folders at all. Trying it with an install from the download rather than a deployment, to see if that makes a difference, either for 2018.0 content or 2018.1. Really wish there was a way to block the content, since the majority of Revit installs probably use networked content, its just a waste to install it locally for everyone. One more example of ADSK not really understanding how their own software is installed and managed.

                Does the deployment coming from BDSP vs a collection have any effect on things?
