The following section lists the prerequisites for installing the EcoBIM add-ins and use them.
- To ensure that all the add-ins work as expected, you must ensure that your workstation meets the requirements for Revit, as described in the following document.
- The EcoBIM universal installer requires an Internet connection, without which you will not be able to install the add-ins. A future version will support offline activation.
- You must ensure that Revit is not running while installing the add-ins. If Revit is running, save your work and quit the software.
Supported Versions of Revit¶
EcoBIM add-ins are available for the following versions of Revit:
- Revit 2020
- Revit 2021

Besides, only versions

The Autodesk installer automatically installs the required version of the .NET
However, Windows 8 and 8.1 limits the installation of the .NET framework in
version 3.5 and earlier. When installing Revit, you will need Internet access
during the deployment so that Windows updates can install or activate the
required version of the .NET framework
Revit 2019 and 2020 use version
4.7 of the .NET framework, whereas Revit 2021
and Revit 2022 use version
4.8 of the .NET framework. Revit 2021 and Revit
2022 are not compatible with version 4.7.

The license is only required if your selection contains add-ins that are not installed on your computer.
If the installer fails to detect the license for any of your selection, the
the following screen appears. Click
Browse or type

|This selection only installs the core files of the add-ins. By default, the language used is that of your operating system.
|This selection allows you to install additional languages and to choose whether you want links that point to the online documentation.
Once your selection made, the installer proceeds with the installation of the add-ins.
Finish to close the installer.
EcoBIM add-ins are automatically accessible from the
