“2011 – Autodesk, Networks, Deployments, etc etc” webinar

Just finished presenting my 2011 webinar on Wednesday, Whoohooo! Enhanced with a new slide deck and new virtual interface this year, you can tell that I did some prepping for this presentation. Hope that everyone who joined really enjoyed it! Yes, I did get to put in some much loved antics. Yes, I gave shout-outs to all my folks. Yes, it is recorded – click the pic for the link on vimeo! 🙂


Recorded the deployment creation separately using Navisworks Manage 2011 instead of Revit Architecture 2011 so that I can fast-forward it.  Everyone will be able to see the complete demo, and even include the GPO software deployment.

If you have any suggestions, feel free to leave a comment or shoot me an email! I’m always open to constructive critics’ thoughts and opinions 🙂 While you do that, I’ll be multitasking and preparing for my next Microsoft exam… Whooohooo!

SmartBIM QTO Network Licenses?

You’ve all seen how great SmartBIM is for your workflow when working with Revit, but for those of you that have network licenses of SmartBIM Library and QTO and have network issues like the one in the screenshot, here’s a solution!


This issue has to do with the IRPStackSize registry entry, especially when it’s set too low. Solution from Microsoft site: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/106167


1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.

2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:


    If the IRPStackSize entry is not present in this subkey, follow these steps:

                a. Click Edit, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.

                b. Type IRPStackSize, and then press ENTER.

                Note Type IRPStackSize exactly as it appears. The value name is case sensitive.

3. Click IRPStackSize, click Edit, and then click Modify.

4. In the Data Value box, type a larger value, and then click OK.
