Q - question

Missing thumbnails of RFA/RVT Revit files in Windows Explorer.

A - answer If your Explorer in Windows Vista does not show thumbnails (previews) of Revit projects (.RVT) and Revit families (.RFA), it is neccessary to re-register the DLL library for previews - revitpreview.dll.

Run the command window in the Administrator mode (under Windows Start type "cmd", right-click on the result and choose "Run as Administrator"). In the command line then type:

regsvr32 "c:\program files\revit architecture 2009\program\revitpreview.dll"

A message confirming a successfull registration of the DLL module should appear.
