IES Virtual Environment - Revit Plug-In

This has been mentioned several times in various blogs but I thought I'd echo them..echo....echo.

Remember if you are using RAC 2008 or 2009 you can take advantage of their free VE-Ware plug-in. Here is a screen capture of their web site page dedicated to Revit.

This is text from their VE-Ware download section:

VE-Ware - Free software for yearly energy, carbon and Architecture 2030 Challenge assessment. You can also try a licence for the easy-to-use VE Toolkits, but not the whole suite.

Recommended for: New Users and Architects etc. who want straightforward performance calculations.

Install process: You’ll need to register and Download VE-Ware (54Mb) here
(For ease of deployment, a single file installs VE-Ware with both the SketchUp and Revit Plug-ins)

Hmm, downloaded the 54mb file from their site after registering, it appears to be a .msi file. tried to launch it but it fails. maybe i'm missing something?

It may have something to do with user permissions. Many applications install via .msi files. Even Revit can be deployed using an .msi.
