Additional Known Issues

The following problems identified in the original release of Building Systems 2006 have not been corrected with this Service Pack.

Inserting a flanged MvPart into a non-flanged pipe of SCH 40 or 80 does not add flanges to the pipes568101
When a flanged MvPart is added into a non-flanged pipe, Building Systems selects a flange to be added to the pipes. With SCH 40 and 80 pipe within Building Systems 2006, there are several flange choices that could be used, thus causing no flanges to be inserted. The workaround is to determine which flange best meets the desired graphical representation and then remove the rest of the flanges.

AutoCAD object snaps turn off when Building Systems is started
Each time Building Systems is opened, the Intersection, Apparent Intersection, and Parallel object snaps are turned off to alleviate some instability when laying out objects.

Duct Fittings with Lining may not display properly.
Duct layouts which have lining applied may not display the lining on duct fittings.  Neither a Regen or Regen Model will resolve the display. To correct the lining display: From the MEP Common menu, choose  Mechanical> HVAC System Definitions.  Select the definition which the duct layout is assigned to and choose the Display Properties tab.  Choose the Display Representation in bold, select the Edit Display Properties button.  Choose OK twice to get back to the active drawing area. The display of the duct fittings with lining will be updated.

Instability when navigating in Project Navigator while drawing is being saved
Navigation within the Views tab of Project Navigator while a drawing is actively being saved may cause Building Systems to become unstable, which could lead to a crash.

Instability caused by location grips555033
Simultaneously clicking the left and right mouse buttons while moving the cursor over a location grip may cause Building Systems to become unstable, which could lead to a crash.

Behavior of Import Current Layout as Sheet command changed in Building Systems 2006
In previous releases of Building Systems, use of the Import Current Layout as Sheet command could result in a single drawing file being used as an element, construct or view in addition to being used as a sheet. Safeguards have been added to Building Systems 2006 to ensure that a single drawing can only be used as an element, construct, view, or sheet. Now, if you use the Import Current Layout as Sheet command to save a view drawing as a sheet drawing, the view drawing will be removed from your project.

If you have a drawing that you wish to use as an element, construct, or view at the same time it is being used as a sheet, you can use the SaveAs command to create a second instance of the drawing and then import the layout from the new drawing to create the sheet. Another solution is to create a new sheet and externally reference the original drawing, which will allow the drawings to remain synchronized.

Instability when accessing a read-only project
Using Project Browser to access the properties of a project for which you only have read permissions may cause Building Systems to become unstable, which could lead to a crash.

Instability when generating tool catalogs
Using the Tool Catalog Generate command to create tool catalogs from a directory or drawing file that contains an extensive number of complex styles may cause Building Systems to become unstable, which could lead to a crash. To avoid this problem, it is recommended that you limit the number of complex styles to be imported within a single use of the Tool Catalog Generate command.

Plotting masked AEC polygons
Plotting masked polygons using color based plot style tables in Autodesk Building Systems:

When plotting masked polygons using the model screened display representation the color for the display component Interior Fill needs to be changed. To do this: From the Format Menu - select Display Manager. Select Representations by Object - AEC Polygon. On the right side double click on the Model Screened display representations. Change the color for the display component Interior Fill from ByLayer to color 140. OK to exit Display Manager.

Plotting masked polygons using style based plot style tables in Autodesk Building Systems:

When plotting masked polygons using the model screened display representation the plot style for the display component Interior Fill needs to be changed. To do this: From the Format Menu - select Display Manager. Select Representations by Object - AEC Polygon. On the right side double click on the Model Screened display representations. Change the plot style for the display component Interior Fill from Thin Screened to Invisible Ink. OK to exit Display Manager.


Service Pack Installation Issues

It is recommended that you back up all custom CUI, MNU, MNS, MNR, MNL, and MNC files before installing this Service Pack.

During the installation of this Service Pack, you may be prompted for the original installation CD, DVD, or network image. Please be sure to have the original installation media on hand when you run the patch.

This Service Pack must be installed by a user with Administrative Privileges. The installation process will stop with an error message if it was attempted by a user without Administrative Privileges.

Apply this Service Pack to an Building Systems 2006 Network Administrative Image

The following two methods of distributing Building Systems 2006 Service Pack 2 apply only to administrative images created with the Building Systems 2006 Network Installation wizard. After you complete these procedures, any new deployments of Building Systems 2006 will have the Service Pack applied to them automatically.

NOTE: Clients that have installed the original deployment MUST install the Service Pack before the deployment can be patched. It is not possible to patch clients after an administrative image has been patched.  If you are unable to update all previously installed clients prior to adding this Service Pack to the administrative image, we recommend that a separate administrative image be created with this Service Pack applied.

NOTE: In both of the following procedures, the patch (service pack) file that you download contains an MSP (Microsoft Patch) file, which you extract from the executable file using the /e (extract) switch; see step 2 for the syntax.

To add Building Systems 2006 Service Pack 2 to a new Building Systems 2006 administrative image

  1. From the Autodesk Product Support website, download abs2006swlsp2enu.exe to your local computer.
  2. On the Start menu (Windows), click Run. Enter the following information, and then click OK:
    <local drive:>\<patch name>\ /e <local drive:>\<patch name>.msp
  1. On the computer where you installed the Network Installation wizard, on the Start menu (Windows), click Autodesk > Network Installation Wizard.
  2. In the Network Installation wizard, on the Welcome page, select Create an Administrative Image, and then click Next.
  3. On the Create Administrative Image page, in the Select Autodesk Installer (MSI) File box, enter the path to ABS.msi, the MSI file that you use as the basis for your administrative image. This file is found on your product CD or DVD-ROM, in CD or DVDROM:\Install\ABS.msi.
  4. In the Administrative Image Location box, enter an existing shared network location where you want to create an administrative image, or click Browse to navigate to a location. Users install Building Systems from this location.
  5. Select the Apply a Patch (Service Pack) to This Image option.
  6. In the Select Patch box, enter the path to the patch location (the location you entered in step 2, including the file extension .msp). You can also browse to locate the MSP file.
  7. Click Next, and follow the instructions in the Network Installation wizard to complete the deployment of this Service Pack.

Files Patched by this Service Pack

None of your customized files should be affected by this patch. However, if you are using a file that has a date earlier than the date of the file originally installed by Building Systems 2006, it will be replaced. For example, if you have simply copied acad.pgp from an Building Systems 2005 installation, it will have a modified date that is before the release of Building Systems 2006 and will be replaced. To avoid this issue, simply re-save the customized file, which will give it a later date, thus preventing its replacement.

NOTE: Any files which have been removed (or moved) after the original installation will be restored by this patch.
