Hi

This is happening because there appears to be a loop in the linked file reference, so the linked file is loading the linked file, which is loading the linked file, etc. I noticed if I load the 1.rvt file, it references 0.rvt. So should I have that file?

Thanks

Paul

Dear Paul,
Thanks for responding,
Any revit file will be linking with another revit file, the 0.rvt (which is linked into the 1.rvt) can be any as simple as possilbe revit file.
You may just simply start a new revit file then draw anything in it, a single line or a piece of wall, whatever, then save as 0.rvt.

Many thanks,
Jim

in addition,
when the 0.rvt load into 1.rvt, it is in the "overlay" method, mean it should not be visit by the main revit file(which is loading 1.rvt), so the content of 0.rvt should be nothing to do with the issue, and it can be anything.
Only thing is the existing of 0.rvt cause the problem.

I am really sorry, but I do not understand what you are saying. It is hard to determine if this problem is because there is no 0.rvt file, or the 1.rvt is corrupt and is referencing itself. Are you able to reproduce this problem with a new scene and a new reference file please?

As you has request I can upload the 0.rvt( though it can be any revit file)

the 1.rvt is not corrupt and not as you said linking itself. Any revit file A which is linking a file B(which has a sublinking file C) will have this problem. it is nothing to do with the C file 's content.
this is what I was trying to say.
also what I was saying is since the 0.rvt can be anything you can make it by yourself, name any revit file as 0.rvt, the problem will be still there.

I am sure you will find out this.

anyway, attached is the 0.rvt

Thanks

I think I have an idea what is causing this, but I will need to do more work over the next week to see if there is a solution. Sorry for the time it is taking on this issue.

Thanks

Paul
