The traditional print publishing industry requires long production cycles before any book or publication can see print. This situation has become more acute for authors like myself who publish books on annual software releases. I hope to use this blog to publish information, updates, addenda, ruminations, and other "mid-cycle" missives. I hope you enjoy it.

Workset Crash

Anyone else having this issue? In Revit 2011, anytime I try to access the Workset dialog, Revit crashes. Happens both when I click the Worksets button and when I try to use the Specify option during open.

What is most annoying is that I get this message about four times before it finishes crashing. Even worse than that, it happens in both Revit Architecture and Revit MEP 2011. I don't have Revit Structure installed, but i suspect it would happen there too.

Anyone have a potential solution? I have tried the repair and reinstall options. I have not tried to uninstall and reinstall yet, because I am not looking forward to having to do that and wait an hour or so for the process to complete, but that is coming next...

Does it happen while in the central and/or local file?

Have you tried access by keyboard shortcut? And if you start with a "none" template does it still happen?

Check out these two links to see if they fix your problem

Does this happen when create new project from scratch?

Success! The problem turns out to be the Autodesk Revit Extensions Manager addin. Go figure.

Following the AUGI post noted in the comments here led me to the solution. I have posted details back at AUGI. Thanks very much for the help!

I'm glad I could help. I'm sick and tried of feeling useless as I've been unemployed for over a year and can't find work, so I guess it's time to move and hopefully I can find work somewhere.

It's been a tough time out there. Hope you find something soon!
