Autodesk Revit 2013 Hotfix Script

Here is a script that will automate the installation of the new DLL files that replace the old ones. Sadly, Autodesk expects for all users to manually replace these files, even in larger corporations, like I work in. This script runs relative to to it's execution path. The only thing that has to be done is to make sure all of the DLL files are in the same directory, including the directory .\RevitServerToolCommand be present, containing the DLL files within that directory too.

Here is the link to Autodesk's website describing what this script does.

Here is the link to download the script below.
