    BIM 360 Design & DWG Links

    I'm using BIM 360 Design (not C4R) in Revit 2018.3.1
    I've got a DWG link that I uploaded to the same folder in BIM 360 Docs
    The DWG was originally located on our network drive, and that's what the path still says, so of course I'm getting a "File not found" error.
    Here's my problem: When I go to Manage Links, I can see my BIM 360 drive under the Revit Links, but I don't have that drive under the CAD Formats tab.
    So, how do I repath my DWG?

    Im not 100% certain, but i thought you had to do it through Desktop Connector? Or did they change it?

    I have Desktop Connector installed, but I'm not sure it's working right.
    It doesn't start on boot. I have to start it manually, and half the time when I start it, I get the Event Viewer popping up.

    Did you install the latest version 6.1.0.667? If you installed an earlier version, one must install two programs: Desktop Connector 6.0 and the BIM 360 plugin B360provider.exe.

    Yup. I've got 6.1.0.667 installed.
    I've also noticed that it's pretty bad at shutting down.
    Seems to often take a long time, or never close at system shutdown

    Forgive me for asking the obvious, but you already have access to the new BIM 360 hub? I installed the Connector on our Citrix servers, and had difficulty with one server. Connector would crash whenever it tried to load. Autodesk was able to resolve it - my Windows Profile was at fault. I don't think this applies to your case; however I wonder if it will work on a different computer?
