I think we've had this one with previous versions, and it may have to do with 'Building Design Suite' vs 'standalone' installations of Revit but the installer looks for Revit.exe in the folder Revit Architecture 2016, while it is in fact in the folder Revit 2016. An easy thing to correct during installation of course but you might update that for future installs ?
Thanks Seeker - I need to either use Revit Architecture, or Revit. Which do you think is the most commonly used?l
I have no idea I'm afraid. I tried to do a bit of digging on it online but to no avail. All I can say is that Autodesk has, in my view, pitched the suites prices pretty cleverly and I think most users are probably on some suite as opposed to a standalone installation. Not sure if that would make a difference to the installation folder/path though. I have also found over the years that Autodesk like to change things, seemingly for the sake of changing them (Autocad 2037 anyone?). So there is probably no guarantee that 2016's folder structure would be the same as that of 2017.
Since you're genius, could you not write a simple script that searches for revit.exe in only those two folders. If either the file or the folders are not found (since Autodesk allows custom install folders), the user should define the location. That should cover 90% of your use cases. Just a thought...
