When BIM Server is not running properly because of missing or corrupted program files, or in case of cosmetic issues, it is easier to repair the BIM Server than to setup the whole environment again.

You can start the repairing process by running the original installer of the affected BIM Server. Although the program files will be set to default, all the data files, like configuration settings, project and library data, users and permissions will NOT be affected.

  1. Run the original BIM Server installer

    The installer detects the installed BIM Server versions on the computer and offers the repairing process if the affected version is installed.
