AutoCAD Architecture 2010 SP1 Released

Autodesk has released Service Pack 1 for AutoCAD Architecture 2010 for both the 32-bit and the 64-bit operating systems.  The service pack addresses fixes in both AutoCAD 2010 and AutoCAD Architecture 2010.

You can download it at the following website:

The update requires access to the original installation disc (or image file if installed via image), so you will want to make sure you have it handy before you start installing the update.  The AutoCAD Revit Architecture Suite 2010, which includes AutoCAD Architecture 2010, uses the same update file as regular AutoCAD Architecture.
