Error Fix for Autodesk Seek Plugin for Revit 2017

From the IMAGINiT Technologies Support blog:

You may bump into an error running Revit 2017 with the Autodesk Seek plugin installed.

Error message:

"Revit cannot run the external application "Autodesk Seek Plugin for Revit". Contact the provider for assistance. Information they provided to Revit about their identity: Autodesk,

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. 

To resolve the problem:

Rename the folder RevitPlugin to 111.-RevitPlugin (or you can use a different name or even delete it):


Then go into Control Panel > Programs and Features and search for Seek, select it and click Repair.

It will automatically recreate the folder, replacing a corrupted .ini file.

There's more information available on the IMAGINiT Technologies blog.

Thanks Tim. Do you know if this works for 2016 as well?

No, I don't know Jason but my guess is that it would.
