Revit 32 Bit & 64 Bit & Vista

Postby Toby Maple » 12 Mar 2008, 09:48

Revit Family of Products
The Revit family of products, including Revit Architecture 2008, Revit MEP, and Revit Structure, is compatible with Windows Vista. Revit Architecture 2008 will run on 32-bit systems or as a 32-bit application on a 64-bit Windows Vista system.

Currently there is no native 64-bit Revit Architecture application. Previous versions of Revit Architecture are not Windows Vista compatible. Whether you decide to run your software on Windows XP or migrate to Windows Vista, Revit Architecture 2008 users should experience the same high performance.

Benchmark testing shows no degradation or enhancement to performance on Windows Vista. All workflows, features, and functionality of Revit Architecture 2008 are the same whether you run the software on Windows XP or Windows Vista.

However, Revit Architecture 2008 does take advantage of some new Vista capabilities. Specifically, Windows Vista offers thumbnail previews for DWG and DWF files in Windows Explorer; displays Revit Architecture properties in the detail tab of Windows Explorer; and provides search tools that look for text strings in the drawing properties, text, and MTEXT of DWG files.

Other applications in the Revit series of products are also compatible with Windows Vista, including AutoCAD® Revit® Architecture Suite, Revit® Structure 2008, AutoCAD® Revit® Structure Suite 2008, AutoCAD® Revit® MEP Suite 2008, and Revit® MEP 2008.
