Fabrication MEP 2023 will Not Install
« on: Jun 07, 2024, 20:12:08 PM »
We cannot get Fabrication MEP 2023 to install on our machine.  We get this error and cannot figure out how to get rid of the object enabler that the error says is it's in conflict with.  This is really messing things up because without Fabrication MEP we cannot path Revit to the correct Database. 
The Murphy Company Mechanical Contractors and Engineers

What the ___? Where did everything go?

If all youre trying to do is path the Database for Revit 2023. You can edit the Registry.
Goto "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\Fabrication 2023\Configuration" Its likely that 2023 doesnt exist, but youre replicating what has been setup in a later or earlier version.
New folders are created by right clicking Pick "New > Key.
Once the folder is created, right click on the right-hand side, select "New" String Value and type "Path". Then enter your database location here.
It should look similar to the default setup in the image attached.

Uninstall  the Object Enabler for 2023 first. That's the conflicting product.

One you install 2023 CADmep, the object enabler will also be part of CADmep and isn't needed as a separate install.

For some reason that makes no sense and is pointless, they consider them conflicting. I gave up at least 10 years ago trying to get them to fix it.
