Revit 2024 Upgrade Error

Posted on September 5th, 2023. Last updated on April 3rd, 2024.

The following error has been fixed in Revit 2024.1.1.

Details on Revit 2024.1.1 are available here.

Installing the new version should fix project conversion so you can work on old projects and families without any problems.

Once you’ve done that, our advice for your files remains the same.


Make sure you have backups of your files. These backups should be versioned so you can access historical copies of files.

This advice is not specific to this error. It should be the standard level of backups in your organization. It should be easy to recover a version of a file from yesterday, last week, and last month.

If that is not the case for your backups, you should make changes to improve your backup situation.

Detecting File Errors

Continue to watch for errors on projects converted from Revit 2024. You are looking for two errors.

  1. You open the file and get a “Schema Conflict when Loading a File” error
  2. You run an ElectroBIM command and it crashes.

If you can open a file and run an ElectroBIM command with no errors, you project should be fine.

If you encounter an error in either of those cases, you need to figure out what is wrong and get it resolved before moving forward. Do not ignore these errors and attempt to work. The solution might be reverting to an older version of a file. You run the risk of losing all the work you did while these errors are occurring.

Contact us if you get a “Schema Conflict” error that references an ElectroBIM schema or if your ElectroBIM commands crash. We can help you figure out what is broken and how to move forward with your project.
