Installation Instructions

The latest version of FenestraPro for Revit v5.0 can be downloaded from this website. On the User Support page of the website, please click on the v5.0 button to download the installation file. Any open Revit sessions should first be closed before the installer can be installed on your machine. The software will then appear as a new icon on the Add-in Menu of Revit. It is not necessary to uninstall any previous version of FenestraPro but you may do so if you wish. Users with existing license subscriptions will be able to continue using the same license if your current version is being upgraded to a newer one. Note: Windows Defender SmartScreen may show a warning on your desktop to confirm the installation – you may click on ‘Run anyway’ to proceed. This is a normal security precaution in Windows. Alternatively to avoid this, after downloading the file from the website, you may browse to the file location (eg. Downloads folder), right click on the file and choose Properties. A new window will open where, in the General Tab,  you may check Unblock. Click Apply and OK to close this window. You may then install normally without any security message from Windows.
If you wish to install an older version of FenestraPro and your existing installation is more recent, the more recent existing version should be uninstalled first since the later version will prevent you from installing an older version in place of it eg. if you have v5.0 installed and you wish to revert to v4.2, please uninstall v5.0 first. Older versions may be upgraded to newer versions without uninstalling the current version on your machine. If you have a current license subscription, it will continue as before. You will not need to input the serial number in the new version. Version 5.0 manages the stored results of previous sessions. When version 5.0 is installed, it will rename the FenestraPro folder on your local machine which has cached all the solar data and logs from previous models. A new FenestraPro folder will be created for v5.0. This avoids having to uninstall older versions of the software or the need to delete any existing files. Note: Any models which have previously been used with FenestraPro will need to have results re-calculated and any properties or options set in FenestraPro during previous sessions will however be lost. An unattended installer is also available for deployment where a command line utility may be used. The Application may then be installed on several machines without users having to input any serial number when opening FenestraPro in Revit. Please contact us for more details if you require this for your organisation.
FenestraPro for Revit includes Linc as an upgrade, which is a database of Glass Types. Linc will need to modify the file which contains the Construction Types in Revit. By accepting the terms of the License Agreement, consent is given to allow FenestraPro to add additional entries to this list so that they appear in Revit. Note: If the Constructions.xml file is manually modified and then saved after FenestraPro is installed or if another version of the file is substituted at any time, writing of the new Glazing Types from Linc may stop working as the new file may not have the permissions necessary to allow editing. This may be resolved by re-installing FenestraPro. Alternatively, while security permissions may be manually set for this file, this is an advanced process and is recommended to be done by those with sufficient expertise.
