    • With the 2013 release, Autodesk has the 3 disciplines combined into one install only if a building suite package is purchased. If a company only needs either Structure, MEP, or Architecture and not need all of the disciplines, only the desired discipline can be ordered. If a company specifically orders Revit Structure and not a suite, then they will use the Revit Structure update. Not all Revit 2013 installations have all 3 disciplines contained with it.

  1. Is there any update for the suite? i cant update my revit. I get the follow message:

    “The update release could not be installed because the expected autodesk product could not be located on your computer.
    Make sure that you are using the correct update release for the product.”

    I tried 32 and 63 bits and nothing…
