We have recently released a number of security fixes for 2017, 2018, and 2019 versions of Revit. These updates address security issues and are required in order to make sure your product continues to work in the future. We recommend you install these Revit security fixes as soon as possible.

We (the Revit Team) decided that in order to reduce the impact to customers of having to install multiple security hotfixes for a single version of Revit, that we would include all the known security hotfixes into the one security hotfix.

General information about the updates is posted here. For specific details on each update, please refer to the read me documents for each.

The updates are:

These updates are needed to help your product continue to function as you expect. You can download them via the accounts page ( or install them via the Autodesk Desktop App.

Even if you subscribe to Revit, you likely will see multiple updates available for you – so that if you didn’t happen to install the point releases you will still have all the fixes available. If you accidentally run the install for a version that is not on your machine, don’t worry, it will not affect the version you do have installed. If you run the installer and the update is already there, you will get a message that the fixes are installed.

For Revit products, these updates also include additional security-related fixes.

We hope that you take the time to install these security fixes as soon as possible to ensure your products continue to function as you expect.
