Bluebeam Revu is currently installing please wait to launch until installation is complete


After updating to Bluebeam Revu 2016 you’ve encountered this message “Bluebeam Revu is currently installing please wait to launch until installation is complete” when attempting to open a PDF from your network or desktop.  Oddly enough, you can open Revu, then browse for a PDF from within the program and the PDF will open for you.

Cause: The install routine of Bluebeam Revu may have been disturbed during install.  A registry key named “Installing” was to have been set to 0, but wasn’t.  It will need changed from 1 to 0.

Fix:  Proceed with caution. If you aren’t comfortable making changes in your PC’s registry, please find someone who is.

  1. Go to your PC’s registry, here is how to do that in Windows 10, and Windows 8, and Windows 7
  2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>Bluebeam Software>2016
  3. Look for a registry key named “Installing”.  The image below doesn’t show this key because that key was set to 0 during a successful install and removed from the registry as indicated in the image below.
  4. Change the registry value for “Installing” from 1 to 0
  5. Leave the registry and get to work with Revu…….you should be good to go! Now you have all the PDF creation, markup, and collaboration tools that Bluebeam Revu offers.

    OK, it did not work for us. BlueBeam launches OK but when we try to open a PDF we get this message. Tried the Registry fix above but no go.

      Hi Francois,

      The install routine of Bluebeam Revu may have been disturbed during install. A registry key named “Installing” was to have been set to 0, but wasn’t. It will need changed from 1 to 0. Thes steps to do this is as follows.

      First you would need to go to your PC’s registry, here is how to do that in Windows 10, and Windows 8, and Windows 7.
      To open the Windows registry, follow the steps below.
      1. Click the Start button.
      2. In the Start Menu, either in the Run Box or the Search box, type regedit and press Enter. In Windows 8, you can type regedit on the Start screen and select the regedit option in the search results. In Windows 10, type regedit in the Search box on the taskbar and press Enter.
      3. If prompted by User Account Control, click Yes to open the Registry Editor.
      4. The Windows Registry Editor window should then open.
      5. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>Bluebeam Software>2016
      6. Look for a registry key named “Installing”. Change the registry value for “Installing” from 1 to 0
      7. Leave the registry and get to work with Revu…….you should be good to go! Now you have all the PDF creation, markup, and collaboration tools that Bluebeam Revu offers.
