Revit Templates and Families are missing

Issue

Regretfully templates and families have been missing After installing Revit

Solution

A separate installer is given to the content for 2015. One of the main reasons downloadable content may be impossible due to network issues.

In order to install the content,

  • First off, access your control panel and uninstall the Autodesk Revit Content Libraries 2015,
  • Select Add/Remove Features,
  • A lot of the time the content packs for all countries will be selected. However, all that we need selected is the UK library,
  • Click on Next.

The default location for the templates and Revit families is C:ProgramDataAutodeskRVT 2015. They should now be in this location. Sometimes, you may not be able to view the Program Data folder. This is because this folder is hidden. You can unhide hidden folders through your control panel.

If they are not in this location after the above procedure is carried out, perform a full uninstall of the content libraries through the control panel. Next, perform a clean reinstall from the media or download installer. This is only for the content library.

Open, Revit>Options>File Locations to now set the correct paths for your templates and families.
