Hey Mike, Try going into Control Panel > Programs and Features > Navisworks 2014 - 64 bit Explorer Plug-ins > Add or Remove Features again, and clear the Revit 2014 checkbox. Click Update. Then go back into the dialog, check the box for Revit 2014 and click Update. Does that help?

Yes, linked files can count. We've seen it reported with 350MB files + links down to about 115MB + links. So if you are experiencing any of the symptoms, I would suggest giving the Hotfix a try.
The build number isn't determined solely by the Utility.dll, but rather as you indicated, by scanning the various dlls at launch. Unfortunately it's not going to change the build stored in the Revit.exe directly. With Service Packs it's a little easier to track, but with a hotfix, you would have to launch Revit first to update the build, and that build would either be pulled from the journal after the first launch or by looking at the Utility.dll.

Did you put the script in the Journals folder? If so, it should go one folder up - so the main folder should have the script in it, and then the Journals folder should be a subfolder to that: C:\Main\Journal File Parser.vbs C:\Main\Journals\ Does that make a difference?
