SS10 - "Label Shapes with ID" Tool Not Working

Hello,

I'm wondering if anyone else has encountered this problem and found a fix on SS10 V 1.03.00 where the Label Shapes with ID tool will not run. Whether I access it from the FDOT Toolbar under Actions > Label Shapes with ID or in the Tasks window under FDOT Plans Development > Quantities I encounter the same error:

I've asked coworkers who are also on SS10 to try the same and they receive the error as well. Looking around the forum, it appears this issue has been present for a while but most of those posts go unanswered. While trying to trouble shoot, we dug into the VBA editor within microstation and pulled the instructions attached to the tool for both SS10 (not working) and SS4 (working). In the attached file, we overlaid the text and the red font is SS10, the green is SS4. It looks like extra ElseIf statements were added to the LabelShapeElements sub and that after that sub, the remainder of the code is the same.

Thank you!

  • Riley,

    This is a defect in the Select Series 10 software where an OCX file that was registered during installations of Select Series 4 applications does not get registered during the installation of Select Series 10 applications. We have added this command to the FDOTSS10 installer, but sometimes it apparently does not work even still.

    Try this:

    1. Exit FDOTSS10, and any other forms of Bentley MicroStation product.
    2. See if the following file exists:
      1. C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Bentley Shared\GEOPAK\08.11.09\BentleyControls.ocx
    3. If not, see if you can find that file anywhere and use that path below
    4. If so, open a command prompt As Administrator (in the windows search bar type command, right click on the command prompt app and select “run as administrator”)
    5. Key in the following two commands exactly as shown below (or with the alternate path), spacing matters (do not include “a.” and “b.”):
      1. Regsvr32 /u "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Bentley Shared\GEOPAK\08.11.09\BentleyControls.ocx"
      2. Regsvr32 "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Bentley Shared\GEOPAK\08.11.09\BentleyControls.ocx"
    6. Then open FDOTSS10 again and see if you can configure the bar menu, or check LDM to see if the issue is resolved.
