Error occurs when ElumTools is initialized.
Typically this error is solved by a simple Revit reboot. Please try the following:
- Close all instances of Revit (if you have it opened).
- Open one instance of Revit.
- Open the file you are trying to work on, without opening any other files.
- Immediately try to perform an ElumTools command.
Please contact Lighting Analysts Support if the problem persist.
If the error persists then it may be caused by a lack of write permissions.
Revit users using ElumTools with worksharing require permission to write (save changes to/sync) the following elements:
Working Views - Instances
Rooms/Spaces – Instances
Lighting Fixtures – Types and Instances
ElumTools Calc Points <various> – Instances
Linked Models – Instances
Analysis Display Styles
Views – Any views where calculation results need to be viewed.
Working Views – Initializing and Upgrading ElumTools requires the ability to create these views. The project should be synced immediately after ElumTools is initialized and upgraded (i.e. do not initialize or upgrade a project with ElumTools with multiple users simultaneously).
Volume Computations – ElumTools requires that Room/Space volume computations be enabled. If disabled, ElumTools will attempt to enable volume computations."
Please verify your user has the proper permissions and try to initialize the project again.
