Windows 10 Update 1803 (Spring Creator) causes AECOsim Building Designer, MicroStation and other CONNECT Edition products to stop working. This Window update has impacted installation of these CONNECT Edition product on operating systems that are non-English such as German, Danish, Spanish and Italian to name a few. Bentley would recommend avoid taking this update. We are working with Microsoft to provides resolution to the Windows 10 version 1803 update notifications.

Unfortunately, Microsoft don't give you the option to update or not anymore. You have to accept the update or stop using Windows 10
Standalone Windows 10 has the option to pause updates for 35 days (search the Settings for 'updates' then pick 'Advanced Windows Update Options') but that is only a pause:
Managed systems have the option to control updates including deferral of Feature Updates for longer periods.
We have the same issue on all computers but one. And weird thing is, only when the normal user of that computer is logged in, it works. I tried to log in with my user on that computer and it gave a problem.

AECOsim Building Designer V8i Select Series 6 Update 1 8.11.09.866
AECOsim Building Designer Connect Edition U3
Just FYI, Microsoft is on it, and we expect an update (hopefully) in July. As most are aware this is very much not specific to Bentley but affects many apps across the board.
Microsoft just issued fix KB4340917 which is available via Windows Update or as a download for use by system administrators.
