Solution: Revit Templates and Families are missing

Solution: Revit Templates and Families are missing


After installing Revit , the templates and families are missing.


One of the main reasons that these do not get installed successfully can be down to network issues. In order to install the content:

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

The default location for the templates and families is eg. C:ProgramDataAutodeskRVT 2015 should now be visible in this location.

If you can’t view the Program Data folder, it is because this folder is hidden. You can reveal 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 set the correct paths for your templates and families.
