Resolved Issues

  • Fixed a bug where Revit files (e.g. rvt) and older Microsoft Office files (e.g. doc, ppt, xls) will create a new version uploaded to BIM 360/ACC each time the software is opened via Desktop Connector. With this update you may open a file and the version will remain unchanged until you update and/or save the file.
  • Fixed a bug when you rename files quickly in Docs in a certain order the files fail to sync and all users subscribed to that project will repeatedly crash showing the AddInProcess.exe.
    Example: Rename the file A.dwg to B.dwg, then quickly rename C.dwg to A.dwg.
