How to fix when Revit Arch/struct 2012 stalls on startup at secsplashwnd | Revit hangs on splash screen

  One of my friend called me asking for help in making his Revit 2012 architecture application usable. Whenever he opens Revit 2012 it just hangs at splash screen for a long time and then it crashes with unrecoverable error message.

  he is very frustrated as he is not even able to open the application. he desperately needed my help...

when i looked the process running in taskmanager while the Revit hangs I saw WSCommCntr3.exe consuming large amount of CPU resources.

 I had terminated WSCommCntr3.exe the process in task manager and tried to open Revit 2012 application. Voila!! it opened in seconds. That's it, WSCommCntr3.exe is the culprit and i decided to disable the process from running. Let see how did i do.

Open regedit and navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\Revit\Autodesk Revit Architecture 2012\Components\WebServices\CommunicationCenter and in the right pane
double click on polling frequency and set it as fffffff . Then set "0" for all the other values and exit as in the below image.

 the above screenshot shows the entries only for revit 2012 architecture, if you have other autodesk products you have to edit these value for all products.

that's it, the process will never be visible in taskmanager.

Hope this helps.. Feel free to post comments.
