Installing CSI/REVIT 2009 FOR ETABS 9.5

Installing CSI/REVIT
2009 FOR ETABS 9.5
Requirements
1-ETABS Version 9.5
2-CSI/REVIT 2009
4-32-Bit Windows Version
Before You Continue
Save a backup copy of REVIT.ini file before you continue to
next step. Once you uninstall CSI/REVIT 2009, you will need to replace the new
file with this backup file.
Procedure
1.      Run the CSI/Revit 2009
application.
2.      When asked for “Revit
Structure INI file Editor”, Press Edit… button and
browse for:-
“C:\Program Files\Revit Structure 2009\Program”. Select Revit.exe and
press Open.
3.      DO NOT press “Start” button, instead click on X
button for closing this dialogue box.
4.      Locate the Revit.exe file when it’s asked for,
but close it from”X” (not from OK).
Installation will continue.
5.      Open “Revit.ini” file with NOTEPAD, in the same
location as that of step-2. You can search in the same folder for ini file.
6.      Find the [External Commands] line. Find the
[External Commands] line. This is the place we’re going to change. [External
Commands] is the command line for Revit which
controls the external applications for Revit
structure (like revit extensions, revit-robot,
etc). Your every change will appear in Revit
Structure/Tools/External Tools/…. program pull down menu. (This is also
explained in Read me file of CSIxRevit ).
7.      If you have REVIT EXTENSIONS 2009, already
installed then goto STEP-9, otherwise continue to
STEP-8.
8.      Now, change the [External Commands] data like
below in notepad.
[ExternalCommands]
ECCount=4
ECClassName1=CSIxRevit2009.Class1
ECName1=Export to Create New ETABS Model…
ECDescription1=Export to ETABS…
ECAssembly1=C:\Program
Files\Computers And Structures\CSIxRevit2009\CSIxRevit2009.dll
ECClassName2=CSIxRevit2009.Class5
ECName2=Export to Update Existing ETABS Model…
ECDescription2=Export to ETABS existing model…
ECAssembly2=C:\Program
Files\Computers And Structures\CSIxRevit2009\CSIxRevit2009.dll
ECClassName3=CSIxRevit2009.clsCSINewModel
ECName3=Import to Create New Revit
Structure Model from ETABS…
ECDescription3=Import from ETABS as new Revit
Structure Model…
ECAssembly3=C:\Program
Files\Computers And Structures\CSIxRevit2009\CSIxRevit2009.dll
ECClassName4=CSIxRevit2009.Class2
ECName4=Import to Update Existing Revit
Structure Model from ETABS…
ECDescription4=Import from ETABS existing model…
ECAssembly4=C:\Program
Files\Computers And Structures\CSIxRevit2009\CSIxRevit2009.dll
GOTO
STEP-10
9.      If you have already installed REVIT EXTENSIONS
2009, then change the [External Commands] data like below in notepad.
Under [External Commands], there will be 4 lines. The first
line will be
ECCount=1
Change it the number 1 to 5. (because
now there will be 4 CSI/REVIT menus + 1 REVIT EXTENSIONS menu)
After the following line
ECDescription1=Manager for Revit
Extensions for Revit Structure 2009
Add these lines
ECClassName2=CSIxRevit2009.Class1
ECName2=Export to Create New ETABS Model…
ECDescription2=Export to ETABS…
ECAssembly2=C:\Program
Files\Computers And Structures\CSIxRevit2009\CSIxRevit2009.dll
ECClassName3=CSIxRevit2009.Class5
ECName3=Export to Update Existing ETABS Model…
ECDescription3=Export to ETABS existing model…
ECAssembly3=C:\Program
Files\Computers And Structures\CSIxRevit2009\CSIxRevit2009.dll
ECClassName4=CSIxRevit2009.clsCSINewModel
ECName4=Import to Create New Revit
Structure Model from ETABS…
ECDescription4=Import from ETABS as new Revit
Structure Model…
ECAssembly4=C:\Program
Files\Computers And Structures\CSIxRevit2009\CSIxRevit2009.dll
ECClassName5=CSIxRevit2009.Class2
ECName5=Import to Update Existing Revit
Structure Model from ETABS…
ECDescription5=Import from ETABS existing model…
ECAssembly5=C:\Program
Files\Computers And Structures\CSIxRevit2009\CSIxRevit2009.dll
10.  Close the file and save it.
11.  No need to make changes in ETABS lic file, but maybe you need to reboot your computer or
apply medicine/crack/patch again for ETABS 9.5 and/or REVIT 2009.
TIPS
Note, the first line under [External
Commands] is ECCOUNT=some#. This # means there are
how many menus under Tools>External Tools in REVIT 2009. So you need to put
it correctly.
The numbers at the end of ECAssembly, ECName, ECClassName and ECDescription decides
the location of each menu uner Tools>External
Tools in REVIT 2009. For example a digit 2 at the end of each of these 4 “EC”
means that the menu is at 4th place.
Location of dll
file in front of ECAssemblyshould
be correct.
